Make sure they take it after you have had a chance to sit for a few. Usually they take it as soon as you get into the room and that just skews the reading IMO. My BP has been 120/70 and at my last it was 120/85 my midwife said she's not concerned because the kids were crazy, I was just rushing around the house. Plus no swelling and my urine dip was negative for protein but we will be keeping a close eye. Try laying on your left side before they take you BP. I'm starting to feel exhausted too, that's pretty normal especially running after 2 litte ones. Hugs Hun! I'll be thinking of you. Oh do you know what your hemoglobin is? That maybe something to look into for the extreme exhaustion.
