Preeclampsia test or am I losing it?
 
I'm 32w5d with my first, and yesterday I went to the hospital for contractions. It was only false labor (thank goodness) but something the nurse did made me a little curious as my regular doctor has not done this yet.
She hooked me up to all the monitors, and after a few minutes, she looked concerned and asked if I knew what my blood pressure was before pregnancy.
I told her I didn't, all I know is that it was usually on the lower side. She checked my blood pressure again, checked the swelling I have on my ankles and hands, tested my reflexes and left the room.
She never asked for a urine sample though. I got a glimpse of the monitor and it said my heart rate was about 86 resting and my blood pressure was like 110/68. I thought that was normal?
She came back about 30 minutes later and acted like nothing happened. It scared me a little.

Was that blood pressure bad?
My next OB appointment is Tuesday if that will make any difference to the testing...

Your blood pressure was absolutly PERFECT! :) Those are some of the best numbers I have ever seen! Im not sure why the nurse looked concerned (maybe she messed up while taking your blood pressure then redid it and realized it was perfect?)
