Some risk: Strabismus, hyperopia and astigmatism can run in families. With this history at hand it is especially important for your pediatrician to do regular vision checks and make a referral to pediatric ophthalmology early if any problems are detected. Very important to check out the red and corneal reflexes.

It's possible : Refractive eye conditions are often passed on to children, however it is not certain that your baby will have amblyopia. Best would be an assessment by a pediatric ophthalmologist at a young age, especially if you notice any crossing or wandering of eyes.

Several things: Depending on where you are in your cycle, pain in your abdomen could be many things. Worrisome issues are ovarian cysts or ectopic pregnancy. Depending on your symptoms (nausea, vomiting, bleeding, diarrhea, contipation), it could be minor or serious. I would consult your doctor immediately.

Mucocele possibly: The bump on the side of your mouth might be a mucocele. It is a clear bump filled with salvia. Caused when the duct to a minor salivary gland gets clogged and the saliva backs up. Most common on the lower lip but can occur elsewhere in the mouth. Ussually resolve on their own. Some times large ones require surgical removal. Bumps on the back of your tongue are probably normal vallate taste buds.

Infection: You have a respiratory/throat infection. Could be viral and could be bacterial best to see a doctor. Other options to help with symptoms include taing elderberry, gargling with salt water or half and half peroxide and mouthwash (do not drink- just gargle) and a warm cloth around neck to hep with lymph glands. Important to rule out strep throat as that will improve with antibiotics.
