I couldn't open that eye this morning, it was all crusted over....EEEEEEEEWWWWWW...
Yah, that sounds like pink eye. I get it whenever my immune system is weakened.
Are you nursing? Breastmilk is a great way to get rid of pink eye. I have dripped a bit of milk in my eyes and in the kids' eyes when we have gotten pink eye and I haven't been able to get to the Dr for the antibiotics. It works well enough, though the meds work faster.
Good luck! Pregnancy is tough enough without have crusty eyes.
