Well it's a sort of worry.

It's getting lower. Yesterday it was 111/68 the lowest it's ever been but lower than my booking in and it was done with one of those electric machines which usually makes my BP nice and high bottom number nudging 90.

Anyway they want it measuring weekly which i was doing anyway as it getting lower apparently can be a concern as much as it getting higher.

I have a consultant appointment on tuesday so we'll see what he says then.

I'm just in a bit of a can't win situation at the moment!

26+4 and still feeling absolutely fine and working!

that must be a strange feeling after having such high BP problems in your last pregnancy? Are you on medication, does it need altering?

well done on reaching each milestone.

Hi Sparkling,

Do be reassured that a BP of 111/68 is perfect!

In terms of blood pressure we are always looking for a reading of 120/80 or lower!
Hypertension is only diagnoseable if the pressures are persistently above 140/90 (either or both numbers)
Low blood pressure is diagnoseable at persistently below 90/60.


Sounds like baby is quite happy thank you mummy!

Warm wishes

Liz

thanks everyone.

It's so tricky this whole pregnant thing. I'm just hoping my BP is going to stay lovely for the next few weeks.

carole I'm not on any medication for the BP I'm controlling it on my own this is all very strange.


Saturday is 27 weeks which is the equivalent of when I was admitted last time and I think I'm going to be okay to still be at home and going to work on monday.

THanks again for your support.
