I just thought about something.....

i know its normal to be tired and want to sleep all the time during a pregnancy...but is i normal to have bags under your eyes so bad it looks like you haven't washed eyeliner off in like a month? could it be that my iron is low and thats why their so dark? i asked my doctor she never said anything was wrong

you can kinda see what im talking about in this picture

  • I would bank on that you're just not getting the sleep your body wants. I mean, you can't make life stop so you can sleep as much as you would like (believe me, I know and understand). I think it will go away when you are feeling better and feeling more satisfied with the sleep you get.

  • fatique and stress can do that.. as can dehydration... try drinking more water and eat foods high in fiber and iron and that should help.

  • Wow, my eye bags are WAY worse!! Dont stress about it, drink lots of water and get lots of rest. I have always had this problem, and it has just gotten worse with age. I cover it up well with make up, when when that comes off... Im a whole other person! You look fine to me... the more you stress about it, the more you will notice it. Good luck!

  • I would ask again, but do not worry much. My 11 y/o DD even has bags under her eyes...We have had docs tell us it is allergy related.
