Hey girls I just got home from the doctor, when i called about having a headache since sunday they had me come in, and my blood pressure is up allot ( 136/100) the first reading and after laying there for 30 minutes, they did not tell me the number just that it was higher, then they told me to go to the hospital for blood work( they said the hospital because they get the results quick) and I have to be back there tomorrow and specify that I must see a doctor and not a mid wife, and I am to sit with my legs propped this evening or lay down they prefer i go to bed, I am just so scared, with Caleb I had high bp but not until around 36 weeks

Well I went back to the doctor today, and had my bp rechecked and it's still high 140/94 so today I start taking blood pressure medicine and continue for the duration of the pregnancy, I go next week to see if the meds are helping and to be put on a machine that gives them an idea of what medicine is best(the machine was not working today so he just gave me the safest/most used medicine) my bloodwork last night was fine which is great so at least it's not affecting the baby negatively yet, I am still scared, and feel so awful feel like it's because I am overweight. I have to see a dietician friday because he wants me to cut down sodium and not gain any more weight the whole pregnancy. so that's my update, I am trying to not be scared and to think positive but it's still scary, my official diagnosis right now is gestational hypertension

Was your BP normal before your pregnancy? I'm concerned about gestational hypertension too because I had HBP for years when I was heavier. Luckily the last few times I have been to the doctor it has been normal or low. I'm sure everything will be ok. At least your Dr is taking care of the issue now. Try not to worry too much.

No i didn't have high blood pressure before pregnancy, but they said sometimes pregnancy can cause it especially if you were already going to get it, such as having a family history of it, which i most definitely do
