A new fun pregnancy symptom!

After a couple pregnancies I thought I'd been through it all...but no, this one has been full of surprises! I have something called facial petechiae. Anyone ever heard of it?

Basically it's a big red splotch on my eyelid...from throwing up. I can't believe I actually threw up so hard I gave myself a "black eye". It's actually a big red spot, but still!!!

Has anyone ever heard of this???

I've heard of them and actually experienced it about a year ago when I had a really bad stomach bug.
