optic nerve swelling and pain

I have had swelling on my optic nerve in my right eye for over 6 months.  When I first noticed it was a blur on the corner of my eye and it was painful to look to the right moving my eye.  I am 8 months pregnant and the problem is getting more frequent happing daily now instead of monthly or weekly.  I am now experiencing blurred vision even without the pain.  I have gone to a specialist and now am being sent to get a mri.  Is the pain associated with these other symptoms give any more concerne or can it all be pregnancy induced?

All depends on the cause of the optic nerve swelling.  See a neuro-ophthalmologist.
