    Default Starry eyed, Flashes of light and colours?

    For those who know what I'm talking about.. What's causing it? I don't have migraines etc this has only happened a few times pre preg, I'm a bit dizzy and I wouldn't be okay to drive a car right now with this blurry vision.

    Usually blood pressure caused it for me. How many weeks are you?

    High blood pressure for me. I've gotten that on and off for most of my pregnancy so far (I'm 34 weeks now).

    It's usually worse if I'm even a little dehydrated.

    Wasn't related to bp for me, mine was always low. My obs called it visual migraines. Pretty scary. I had never had them before pregnancy or since

    Could be an eye migraine. Google to see if it matches. I have had them randomly, not when pregnant, never any headache or anything with them just my vision impacted.

    I have had that from high blood pressure and also occasionally they accompany a migraine when I have one. Whether or not I have high blood pressure with those migraines I don't know. Best to get checked.
