  • Well, I know that being pregnant can actually change your eye glass perscription, you're told not to get a new one while pregnant, and I couldn't wear my glasses while pregnant cuz they gave me severe headaches. So, maybe it's caused by the same thing. I would definitely make sure you're drinking enough water and I would consider eye drops :P

  • I did have this problem when I was pregnant. I also had nosebleeds. Mine got better toward the end of the pregnancy but then the bloating and swelling kicked in. So i basically traded one evil for another

  • yes, your pregnancy messes with the mucus membranes all throughout your body.
