I am just at 8 months pregnant and I went to the doctor today for a typical check up. My blood pressure was up big time.140/90 it is usually around 107/70 or so. My doctor found concern becouse he is worried about toximia in my pregnancy. He went through a list of symptoms to look out for. He mentioned to report to him if i see any "sparklies or static in my vision. I said HELLO, I have those all the time Especially in bright lights or just looking in a grey sky. He said people with high blood pressure get that and he mentioned scotomata. Now i've heard of that but never mentioned with the sparklies or static. I guess I don't know where I'm going with this but maybe it can provoke some thought in others.
