  • It could have just been from blood flow, it could have been the start of a migraine, or it could indicate pre-eclampsia. If it went away, though, you're probably fine. Try to remember to mention it to your doctor at your next appointment (unless it keeps up, then you'll want to call beforehand), but don't worry too much if it was just a one-time thing. :)

  • It could have been from low blood sugar if you needed to eat or mild dehydration if you needed to drink.

  • i was always told if you think somthing is just not right, ( normal) Then you should -one- talk to your doctor, or -two- go to the ER, ITS BETTER if you get checked out with a doctor,NOT cafemom, and make sure you and your baby are doing okay, its better to check then to be sorry you didnt. dizziness and blurred vision doesnt sound normal to me!

  • It could be from something as simple as letting yourself get dehydrated, to blood pressure issues, or even blood sugar issues. Only your OB could really help you decide which it is but if you have swelling accompanied with dizziness/blurred vision you should be seen asap.
