can you girls look at my bp readings please xxx


ok so wen i had my first booking appt, my bp was 146/88 which was not great for me at all- but, i was absolutely terrified.

so i bought a home monitor and check it myself. i take it in morning and afternoon but not always the same times- tho only a couple hrs different.
heres my readings.

27th jan 09.30 (after breakfast) 1 reading = 119/63 pulse 78
28th jan 08.26 (after breakfast) 1 reading = 104/63 pulse 83
29th Jan 09.30 (after breakfast) 1 reading = 129/63 pulse 70
30thjan 11.03am (afterbreakfast) 1 reading = 117/61 pulse 84

now either im doing it wrong or i have a serious issues when going to a mw.
My last mw appointment my bp was 140/60 and she said it was ok because the bottom number was low, something i dont understand as I thought it was assessed on EITHER number being high.
my readings vary slightly but the bottom number is fairly consistent and the top isnt too different. i've yet to have a reading which is anything close to when I seea dr

I've noted these readings in my pregnancy notes.
whats your opinions on this.

On my booking in my BP was 110/60
16 weeks - 100/58
23 weeks - 125/58
27 weeks (went to assessment unit) - 120/61

My BP is low as it is measured on the second number. However, as my baseline BP (the one at the booking in appointment) was low, there are no concerns at the moment. I have always had a low BP rate and often have mini dizzy spells (when I get up too quickly for example).

Ideally your lower number should be above 70 I believe but if you've always had a low BP they don't get too concerned if it remains low.

looks good to me, you should only be concerned if the bottom number is too high!

My bp is normally around the 120/70 ( and has been through my other 2 pregnancies) but my mw visit last week it was 131/87 which I thought looked a bit high for me but mw didnt say anything?

taken from another site:
"The top number is the systolic number, or the amount of pressure that is in the vessels at the time of work or heart beats blood through the vessel. The bottom number is the diastolic number, or the amount of pressure that is in the vessels at the time that the blood is not being pushed through the vessels"
