My daughter is 6 months pregnant. While in the shower she became dizzy developed a persistant headache and the blood vessel in her eye burst. Is this ?

In brief: Check blood pressure

A broken blood vessel on the white part of the eye, called conjunctival hemorrhage, is typically benign.
In the setting of pregnancy with dizziness, the concern is pre-eclampsia. She needs to see her OB and get her blood pressure tested.
