HELP seeing stars/glitter/dots at 37 weeks?


I'm 37 weeks today and for the past week or so I get occasional spells of blurry vision then see little flickers of glitter or stars?
Is this normal? I've had plenty to eat etc
I seen my midwife on wednesday and totally forgot to mention it (as I always do).
She said my BP was fine though..which I've read can be the cause of this.

Should I be worried?

Doesn't hurt to call and check just in case.

I get spots/flickers occassionally, and have been told only to worry if it is accompanied by a headache or doesn't go away quickly - but every woman is a bit different.

I get the same thing occasionally if I bend over or I strain to do something. Don't think it's a big deal if it's an isolated symptom.

Sometimes it's there for about 5 mins and then will go away for around 1 minute and re-appear.
Did they say what it is or how to prevent it?
I also feel weak and sick sometimes..don't know if it's linked though.

I'm not even doing anything most of the time when it happens, just sitting around :\

I have the same problem, and generally feel like I am about to pass out when it happens tho I never do.

Dr said as long as my bp stays controlled, it's not a big deal.

I get these now and again, even before I was pregnant.
Its a similar symptom to lightheadedness - not much to be worried about

give the pregnancy unit a call, they will have you in and take some obs over a period of time. my main worry would be pre eclampsia.
