    I had a little funny vision in about the beginning of the 3rd trimester with my previous pregnancy. Dr put it down to periods of low blood pressure, rather than the reverse. I didn't have any other symptoms though. Sparkles is a good way of describing it. Passed relatively quickly, although there was one occasion at work where there was more sparkles than vision left in front of my eyes, which was a bit concerning.

    Default Re: Reason to worry or just being paranoid?

    I've heard that a pregnancy symptom is changes to your vision. Could it just be that?

    Thanks again everyone. All the individual symptoms are probably pretty normal for pregnancy, just got worried when put all together they were possible signs of something more serious.

    When you say hard to focus- is it like seeing little squiggly lines or worms in front of your eyes??
    OJandMe - do you know how accurate the pee in a jar thing is? I did it last night, and as soon as it was shaken it came up with a 2cm frothy white head, then after 5 mins was about a 1cm head and still there (but gone down a bit) 20 mins later. Same result when I did it this morning.

    Default Reason to worry or just being paranoid?

    I'm almost 30 weeks pregnant and my blood pressure has just started to creep up which seems to happen at this stage with my pregnancies but has yet to turn into anything with any of them. im usually just monitored for a little while at each appt. If you're concerned then yes call you're midwife. You can always go to a local chemist and have them check your blood pressure too. I've also heard that vision changes can be a common pregnancy thing, something to do with the extra fluid changing the shape of your eyes slightly.

    Default Reason to worry or just being paranoid?

    My cousin is a dr and days that the urine in a jar should not be trusted. Best idea is to get some dip sticks from the chemist.
