not sure-but im going on 11 weeks now and for the past 2 days my upper eye lid, left side only, has been twitching...almost all day...its so annoying and don't know what the hecks going on!Probably not. You might want to see a doctor, but you don't have to mention pregnancy if you don't want to.

That's an interesting question, because for about two weeks my upper lip has been twitching almost constantly. Last week I had a positive pregnancy test. I don't think any scientific studies will ever prove a connection, but regardless, if it continues to bother you, have it checked.

Strangely enough, for about two weeks I have had an occasional muscle twitch in my lower eyelid , right up against my eye, and today 12-14-04 I just got a positive pregnancy test. I would be about three weeks pregnant. Strange coincidence, eh?

Facial muscle twitches, like that of the eye or lip, are most likely caused by stress. Your body is under more stress when pregnant because of hormonal changes, so a pregnancy could contribute to a twitch. However, twitches could be caused by other stresses in your life, a change in birth control meds, lack of sleep or good diet, etc. If you are worried about being pregnant, you should take a home pregnancy test to rule it out (or in).

I'm 13 weeks pregnant and just got an annoying eye twitch in my left eye lid. It started about a week and a half ago. I never had this before but looked it up and see other pregnant women have this problem as well. I really don't know what is causing it, but I hope it goes away after the baby if that's what it is.

My left eyelid has been twitching all day today, So finally I decide to go on the Internet and research my little problem, Then I come along and find this page, How funny because I am now 15 weeks pregnant!!! Could this be real? "I am thinking to myself" I am going to go have this checked out anyway!
