Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: During my pregnancy, I saw occasional floaters in my vision. I may by due to more fluid being retained in your body. My floaters just came and went, and after my baby was born, they went away entirely.
Floaters can be a normal occurrence in pregnancy but may indicate other complications of pregnancy.
