    I had my 34wk mw app today and she took my bp & said yep it's fine, I've just looked at my notes and it was 98/66 seems quite low compared to all my others 110/80 126/76 etc

    Is this too low? I looked online sone say it's a bit low and some say it's too low!? I can't see why she would say it's fine if it wasn't though? Do u think I need to go to my gp or just wait till my next app in 2 weeks time?

    it does look a bit too low but maybe it's normal in pregnancy to go this low, not sure

    my blood pressure pre-pregnancy & last pregnancy was always around 110 / 70. this pregnancy, it's been 90 / 50, so significantly lower. my midwife is quite happy with this, better low than high. i have had times when i've felt dizzy & fainted, but for the most part it's not had any adverse effect. it was last checked yesterday at my 36 week appointment & was 90 / 50. the only times it's been higher is when i've had to have blood taken or an anti-d injection.

    Don't worry too much.
    Mine has consistently been 88/60 or thereabouts and doc not worried.
    Much better to have low than high at this stage x

    With all three of my past pregnancies it was that low and lower sometimes. My Dr. said its a good thing just need to be careful sometimes due to dizziness and fainting (Which I have done in past pregnancies) This pregnancy is borderline high so we have to keep an eye on it (Which is very odd for me.)

    Usually low blood pressure isn't a problem unless it causes anything like fainting/dIzziness. Like others say it's better low than high. My blood pressure has ranges from 90/60 to 115/70. Doctors aim for everyone's blood pressure to be about 120/80, but this varies alot from person to person xxxxx
