    Yeah, you should get checked out. I do my own blood pressure sometimes too and can get all sorts of different results though, so it isn't necessarily anything to worry about. Eg this afternoon 146 over 90 on my monitor, but 125 over 80 at the clinic.

    I do get headaches at times and I have noticed that my eyes are abut crappy. My mother has told me to rest and see what it is in the morning. Doesn't want me to ring midwife as she might have to take me to hospital tonight. How annoying!

    Ring the midwife or hospital, I think you should have you bp checked by someone. Mine was 115 when I was in labour and 100 when they induced me, which i was told was very high. I was also told that its 'safe' for you bp to be up by 20 (bottom number) of your booking in bp reading if tht makes sense? They can give u blood pressure tablets if need be. hope everythings ok, thinking of you :hugs: xxx

    I girls, I took BP before I lay down and it was 160/100. After a while it had gone down to 121/77. I have decided to just have a rest tonight and see what it is in the morning. OH is panicking as he is not here, bless him.

    If BP is alright tomorrow I will wait to see what it is like in the afternoon. The only bad thing is I'm doing peoples hair tomorrow from 9-3.45.

    Eurgh I'm so exhausted, I feel like crap !

    yeah that is really high. my usual is about below 96 and the lower bit is usually 70 or below. I do have low (normally low) blood pressure though. On a good day my blood pressure is is fine at about 111/82. This gives you some indication as to what it should be.

    They used to say your age +100 for the first number but it's the 2nd number that is the important one.

    Mine at booking in was 140/80 which is fine for my age as i am nearly 40, and the 80 is on the high side of normal, but my bp has remained constant so mine is 'normal' for me.
    It all depends on what is 'your' normal - and different bp machines will give different readings, just like different cuff sizes will aslo affect the readings - an whether you're even talking when the test is on or not.

    The reading my maternity book gives as a reason for you to be checked out for pre-eclampsia is anything above 140/90 - a reading that is higher than either the top or bottom number (e.g. 137/94 or 145/85) should be checked, especially if it is combined with blurry vision/seeing stars & puffiness of ankles, hands, face and feet.

    Best give mw a call to get checked out just to be on the safe side. I'm sure you will be fine but I had to go to the hospital to be checked when mine was 138/94. They checked it and I have been fine ever since but I now get checked regularly.

    Mine was 120/60 normally and rocketed to 165/95 and was watched carefully for pre -eclampsia (sp) but you need your urine testing asap for protein

    luckily mine was all due to stress and not pre-eclampsia

    think you should get checked out

    The doctors get concerned if the bottom number is 90 or above, or 20+ from booking in bp. However my consultant with my last baby (one of the best in London due to having pre eclampsia in three previous pregnancies, and having a stillbirth in my third pregnancy) says that the electronic bp machines are unreliable for pregnant woman, so much so they no longer use them in the maternity department (so antenatal clinic/ward, labour ward etc). Still worth a quick bp check with either your mw or gp just to reassure you.

    Mine is usually really low, 96/48......so when mine gets to 130's/80's I get worried, but the doctors/nurses never seem to be concerned.

    Hopefully yours will go down and wont be too much of a problem for you!!!
