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

Oh my goodness! I hope you're laying down. I know when my bp went up with my first, they had me lay on my left side. You'll have to let us know how the doctor appointment goes tomorrow. Luckily, you're catching it early and they can get you some answers. Please keep us posted. I'll be saying a little prayer for you and your lo! Update as soon as you can! We're thinking about you!

I'm not one to put in videos unnecessarily for the kiddos, but, this is an emergency! Grab a video and put it in! Dora? Handy Manny? Blue's Clues? Hanna MOntana? Veggie Tales? (I'm not sure what younger kids are watching these days....I'm gonna find out soon, though ) Desperate times call for desperate measures. How are you feeling? Is the headache still there?

How are you doing today?
I also wanted to say that for me it's been the opposite. every time I have a headache my bp drops to the floor. Do you still have the headache? Drink lots of fluids, it will help with the headache.

Hey girls, thanks for your concern, and yep the headache is still here, the doc says it should go away when the meds start working!
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

I hope the meds help and that the headache goes away. Have you try to lay down in a cool dark place with an icepack on your forehead?
