"if you wear contact lenses, don't be surprised if they feel like they no longer fit. The shape of your eyes has changed, and you don't produce tears as much as you used to. Ask your doctor if you need a new prescription, or ditch the contacts and rely on your glasses for the rest of the pregnancy."

Oh, I've noticed that!  But I wear glasses for driving and seeing movies and stuff.  They just don't seem to work as well anymore.

 

But that's weird about the tears thing.  I had no problem crying like a crazy lady this morning over the "Today Show" when they told that story about the granny who helped stopped a robbery by swinging her purse.  It totally got me...a truly selfless moment, and she overcame her age and arthritis!  Me...weep, weep, weep.  :)

My contacts have been bugging me too! Unfortunately I haven't gotten new glasses in years, so I've been wearing a really old prescription and they are crooked!

Yeah, mine always bug me when I'm pregnant.  They just feel really dry and not right.  I just deal with it because I hate wearing my glasses!

 DDCC - I haven't been able to wear contacts since my pregnancy with DD, so be prepared for that possibility as well...

My vision is always terrible during pregnancy and the first few months post-partum.  It is so bad that I can hardly see to drive at night.  I've been told that pregnancy hormones change the shape of your eyeball.  Who knew??

I totally have this problem too.  I had to give up wearing them for now.  I'm back to wearing my glasses that I bought in...oh 2001!  Putting in contacts right now feels like sliding shards of glass into my eyes.  I just can't take it.  Even thinking about it is making me teary eyed.
