Weird question about eyes

ok so I am preggers and my husband looked at me this morning and said why are the whites of your eyes yellow? I was wondering if this might be a pregnancy thing and if anyone else has had this. what it is. I didn't have it with my first one so I am kinda unsure. Thanks for any help ladies

  • What Steph said is exactly right, although I would not wait and see if it goes away. If you wait too long and there is indeed a problem it can get pretty serious. Please call your doctor.

  • Def call your doc asap. Usually when your eyes turn yellow it's because you have jaundice.

  • Usually Jaundice or Liver failure which if left untreated can turn to Kidney failure. Regardless please get seen.

  • I would seriously call the doctor...do not be worried as of yet..these answers would scare the heck outt of me,

    but listen..it could be that your low on your iron,...

    so give them a call..
    im sure ...they have taken your blood hon..and they would have found somthing wrong with the liver..
    you could have high blood pressure...
    it can cause liver problems

  • Just because they have taken your blood for your prenatal blood work does NOT mean they would have found something wrong with your liver, if that is not what they were testing for (and routine prenatal blood work does not include testing for liver function FYI) So Please do not listen to that, as it is a false statement.
