Pregnancy makes me need glasses.

When I am pregnant I have vision issues.    (Not spots like with blood pressure, but just fuzzier...)   
After delivering my vision improves.

Anyone else have this issue??

I do too!!! Oh BOY do I!!! LOL! I've heard that a lot though-vision changes in pregnancy. I want to go get glasses but I want to wait until after she is born b/c I know the Rx will be TOO strong. :)

I wonder why that is??  Mine is crazy it takes me forever to read anything small  cause I just can't focus and it all blurs together. On top of the fuzziness my eyes seem to want to go all dizzy like they are twitching or something. It doesn't happen often but when it does it bugs the crap out of me.

Yes my prescription has changed each time I have been pregnant.  My eye doc has said that is normal.  I am due for my annual eye appt but am hesitant to go in.  I am only 16 weeks and I would hate to get a prescription now and then after baby comes it changes again and my insurance only pays for one visit a year.

BTW I am having bp issues and each time I go in and they ask if I am having vision problems I always say I don't know.  I have bad eyes anyways.  Had LASIK 5 years ago and they are rapidly getting worse again.

I actually quit needing reading glasses.  LOL.  Now that I've delivered I need them again (very low prescription)

I never realized that happened~    that sucks!!!

Just as a woman’s heart knows,

How and when to pump,

Her lungs to inhale,

And her hand to pull back from fire,

So she knows when and how to give birth.

yeah my prescription changes slightly during pregnancy too. Thankfully not enought to need new contacts but I will get them checked again about 2 months postpartum.
