Dry Eyes

My eyes are burning all the time. I just looked it up, and low and behold, dry eyes are a pregnancy symptom! This is a new one for me, and I am on my third.

Anyone else? This totally sucks. Off to buy some artificial tears today.

I had an eye exam at 15 weeks with my last pregnancy and the eye doc asked me if I was having dry eye issues. I told him no and he said 'oh then it must be a boy... Dry eyes are more common when you're expecting a girl.' That was one I never heard before!

I have never heard of that! But it doesn't sound very pleasant! Hope the artificial tears help you out!

hmmm - I never heard that one.... I am sure all of those things are true...50% of the time...LOL
but it was not a problem last time for me (I had a boy) and I am having drier more irritated eyes - not awful, but I am on my 2nd eye infection in the past month caused by not enough oxygen in my eyes (I wear contacts) so maybe girls this time...
