So I checked my BP for the first time in weeks. I'm not swelling, I'm not having frequent headaches, but I've seen little flashies once or twice so I checked. 142/94. Definitely high.

I know I need to call the doctor, but should I get a few more readings over the next few days and then call? Or should I just call tomorrow. I'm on a low dose of methyldopa, and quite frankly I want my OB to increase it and have done with it. But if she's just going to tell me to watch and wait, should I just do that first?

What would you guys do?

Edit: I did have an INSANELY busy day.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

Check it again in the morning, your bp is naturally lower then. If it's still up I'd call, they may want to check your urine for protein.
