Anyone here having trouble with blood pressure? Mine keeps going up! The past few dr appts has been 140/90, today it went up to 150/90. We did a NST, baby is doing great! It's not pre-eclampsia, its most likely stress induced (thanks to my work). Midwife wants me on bedrest all weekend, and the OB is going to review my records on Monday. I think they will just recommend a blood pressure medicine. Anyone else on something to control blood pressure? Did your dr also put you on bedrest? I go back in on Wednesday for another check-up. I'm pretty much going in every 3-4 days now to be monitored.
I had blood pressure with my son, they did put me on bed rest for the last two weeks of my pregnancy. They didn't put me on anything but I was getting NST's twice a week until the end and then I was scheduled to be induced when it wasn't controlling itself. My son came before the induction date so I didn't experience that. It was uncomfortable and I had a lot of swelling and I had protein spilling.
mine just started to get a little high..mine was 138/70 when normally its about 110/70 ( i never remember the lower number) but i have swelling too..i hope that everything works out for you hun and you dont need meds!! HUGS!
