Vision Changes

I’m pregnant, and I keep having those odd little floaty things in my vision. Did you have them?

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.
