it does really depend on what your pre-pregnancy bp is, i would say anything above 85-90 (bottom number) would be considered high, in pregnancy mine goes way up to 95-100but i am on meds even when not prg, hope this info helps....

my mw told me if its 140/90 or above, they will take you in for monitoring. I think anything over 85 is considered "high", with 80 being "normal" x

Second number counts more, and mw said to be this morning that 90 is the trigger number for them to be concerned, although she seemed a little worried that mine had gone from consistently being 60 to being 80 this morning. She said if you're getting headaches that won't shift and/or swelling in hands/feet these are also warning signs.

Yes they worry more about the bottom number being high. Top number tends to go up with stress, so is technically more within your control!

They're monitoring me for high-ish BP - it was 158/78 on Friday.
