It is on the higher side, it is more the bottom figure they look at, and your heart rate is a bit fast to.

Try and calm yourself down are you anxious?

My midwife told me, that they allow for 20. Meaning if your bp to start with *at the beginning of pregnancy*, was like 120/70 they would allow up to 120/90 (example), although mines was 120/80 to start with, and she said if it gets closer to the 100 then it needs to be checked up on.

The fact it is under the 100 it might be OK.
If you have any signs of swelling along side it? then maybe worth phoning, and seeing what the midwife says?.

If you have had a bit of an off day, maybe after a good nights sleep (well as good a sleep as possible lol) might help, and check it again in the morning?

Maybe try taking it again? Then give them a call if its still as high. Mine comes up high sometimes so my midwife takes it a few times to make sure its right and it often comes up lower the next time.

I had mine taken a few days ago and the bottom number came up at 104. So she did it again and got 98 then again and got 87. The week before it was done and wasnt dropping below the mid 90's. She is only ever worried if it doesnt drop the more she does it
