Question: EYE SYMPTOMS - PREGNANCY ?
|Melani - Fri Sep 17, 2004 7:23 am|
On Friday (10. 09), despite having done nothing at work, I went home exhausted - went to bed at 19:00
Woke up on Saturday with puffy eyes and eyes felt strained.
Monday, (13. 09. 04) I felt the same tiredness, this time with a dull Headache the whole day.
Tuesday, 14. 09. 04 I had the most horrid tired eyes - they feel so strained - eyelids have been a little puffy.
My body itself does not feel tired.
Wednesday - stayed home from work, eyes were severly strained and just slept the whole day, feeling tired.
My eyes have been feeling dry and tired ever since.
I am a secretary who spends a lot of time in front of the computer adn read a lot.
I am meant to wear reading glasses which were prescribed 6 years ago - but due to financial constraints just never got them.
Do I need to go for an eye-test ?
My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a while now
What with a missed period and other pg symptoms I was just wondering if dry eyes were a symptom during pregancy (early pregnancy)
I would have ovulated 1-3 September. From my calcualations, I should be able to test for pg from today. Will buy a test later but any advice before then would be appreciated.

Sorry for the late response. How do you feel now? Are your eyes still puffy? Did you have your Pregnancy test done?
Puffy dry eyes are not usually part of early pregnancy symptoms.
Are you a Doctor, Pharmacist, PA or a Nurse?
