okay so I have a burst blood vessel in my eye. Just woke up and it was there. I wasn't worried b/c I know they are harmless and can happen anytime, and maybe more during preg. But my kids, husband and mom are all freaking out. (cause of how it looks). Should I cave and make a dr/MW appt or just tell them to chill out? I have my next prenatal June 28.

If it were me, I wouldn't unless it grew, more appeared, or other symptoms showed up. Of course there'd be no harm in getting it checked out too if that would make you feel better or is easier than having your family worry.

I would.  Because it wouldn't make any difference to me to see someone, and it would put everyone else at ease :)

hmm, I will email MWs and see what they think. Its a complete PITA for me to go to the doctor... have to drag the kids along... of course their schedules are complicated... plus I have never actually gone to these docs before (since I haven't had insurance until June 1, and I moved here in mid Sept, its not like I actually have a doctor who I see or anything).

 

(okay editing to add I realize that this is a lame excuse not to get something checked out)
