So, I didn't feel well last night while making dinner. I had a horrible stomach ache and felt kind of woozy. I didn't eat supper and ended up having eggs and toast before bed. Anyway, because my sister had pre-e so bad, I've been periodically checking my blood pressure at home with a manual cuff (I'm a practical nurse, so I know what I'm doing). Last night after I felt a little better, it was 140/90. I'm normally in the 120's over 70's. So I decided to just drink some water and relax, took it in the other arm and it was higher. This morning I take it and the top number is lingering around 150 and the bottom around 110.

I called the doctor to see if I could just get a nurse visit to have them check it in case I'm just not hearing it right, she said just to go to the hospital. UGH! My mom is on her way since SO went to work and has the car, but I'm going to go to Rite Aid and check it at the machine there and see what that says. My hands are always swollen when I wake up, but they go down pretty quickly....the swelling hasn't gone down yet and I've been up for hours.

Wish me luck, ladies! Hopefully it's a fluke and all is well. I haven't had a single problem yet, so lets hope this isn't the start of it.

I hope you'll be fine, pre-e is usually very controllable, I wouldn't worry too much. I've been really neurotic about taking my bp this whole time, too, Having had it twice already. KUP!

If your Doc. said go to the ER, then you need to go. Pre-E is not something to mess around with and the machines at the pharmacies can be way off. They aren't calibrated regularly.

Last pregnancy, I measured 150/90 in the Dr. office and she was sending me to L&D.

Hope all is going OK for you. Your daughter needs to cook just a little longer.

Thanks for all the well wishes ladies, they must have done the trick! I just decided to go straight to the ER because I know the machines at the drug store can be off. They took me straight to L&D, even though my BP was only a little up from my normal. Anyway, baby was super stubborn and they only got a few minutes here and there of her heartbeat, but they monitored my BP and about an hour later, they sent me home. Looks like everything is fine. However, I did decide for sure that we'll be going to the hospital an hour away to have the baby. They put me in a "labor" room and there was barely enough room for the bed and a chair. No thanks! Haha.

Glad your BP is staying in check for now. Hopefully it stays that way for just a few more weeks until baby is more fully cooked .

Glad everything is OK! Maybe it was something you ate or drank or just the stress of stressing about it that caused the higher numbers!
