BP issues this early? Opinions pleas...
I know I haven't posted in awhile... been busy with work and family in town. I have a question...

So I had preeclampsia with my last baby but not with my older two. Its with the same partner with all 4 (including this baby). My normal blood pressure (even with this pregnancy) is 100/60.

Well lately its been going up and down... its reading around 125/85 now with getting a few headaches with these but that's all. I know its not preeclampsia this early... but should I be concern? I have been having my normal readings till recently. Trying to get opinions and such! Any stories would be nice also.

Thank u!

125/80 is still pretty normal....130's/90's not so much.

Also, how are you taking your BP?

I think you are OK so far. I'm the same way. Had the very onset of pre-e with #1 at 39 weeks when they induced. Had PIH through #2 and they monitored me closely, but it never went to alarming rates. My typical rate is very similar to yours.

I would just keep monitoring it. In a couple weeks, they'll continue watching the proteins in your urine checks, too. Combined, you should have a good check on things. On days where it's higher, take it easy, lay on your left side. You probably have Preg Induced Hypertension, which could lead to pre-e. Being that you've had it, it's good that you're monitoring and know what to look for. I'm right there with you!
