    Saw midwife yesterday - my BP was right up 160/100! so i got sent to maternity triage - again - put on monitor - and all 3 series of BP's taken was around 130/80 LOL!!!!:wacko:

    so i got sent home after an hour, honestly they must think im doing it on purpose!!

    they cant see anything wrong with me - and everytime i get sent in for high blood pressure its fine again in hospital

    glad it was down otherwise theyd have kept me in for xmas!! :nope:

    Thankfully it was within range when you went to the hosp

    i know what you mean by them thinking your doin it on purpose
    iv been up 3 times with Reduced FM and EVERYTIME i go up
    he goes mental on CTG.. so last week when i was up i mentioned
    even before the ctg that i was embarrased cus he acts like a different
    baby when im up there :blush:

    Hope your bp stays down now for you xx

    lol its crazy isnt it - stressing us out for nothing lol!

    suppose its better to get checked out tho :D

    cant even see my MW next week as shes fully booked and cant get hold of her to arrange a home visit - if i dont see her next week shes off on annual leave til 27th Jan!
    do you think the hospital would check my BP for me if i cant get hold of her??

    Oh god yeah they'd have too..
    all you'll have to do is explain the circumstances
    you shud be due a antenatal app/checkup anyhow
    so the hosp shud do it no problem for you

    over here in some of the pharmacies
    we can walk in and get BP checked while preg if concerned
    and of there cause for worry or its reading high ,we jus pop upto
    hosp then...

    but hosp shud take you NO PROBLEM :thumbup:

    Glad your bp went down and you've been able to come home again.

    Even if your mw if booked up, your GP or a nurse practitioner at the surgery should be able to check it. Otherwise, if you have a walk-in centre nearby, they'll do it (a colleague of mine was about 34 weeks pg, felt rough with headaches etc and was seen in the walk-in centre immediately).

    I hope the bp stays down and behaves itself over Christmas!

    Just a thought but ...i assume your midwife knows to use the correct cuff size for your arms? Sounds simple but apparently if they use the wrong cuff it measures the bp too high giving a false result. Ive become a bit of a bp expert as im now on meds and keep having to get checked every 2 days. Its a really common issue apparently and may explain why your ok as soon as you get to hospital. Mine, unfortunatley often goes the other way! I measure high at the midwife and then it goes thru the roof on sight of the hospital doors! :dohh:xx

    maybe u have that whitecoat syndrome thing were when u go to the midwife u subconciously think about it and it goes up!! its crazy but it does happen! have u thought about getting a home device? :) then u can know for sure if ur blood pressure is actually up when ur duing normal things!! poor u hope things get sorted! <3 xxx

    Glad you're ok and got an appointment. They'll probably tell you to see GP at 38 weeks and hopefully you won't need any more appointments after that cos your baby will come on time (unlike mine :( )
    My mw was full yesterday so she arranged for me to go to a different clinic in the same area today, not ideal as it was a nightmare to park (and 8 miles away so no other option but to drive) but at least I got checked.
