    You could buy a BP monitor - you can test it once a day then. My BP is also high, and am on meds for it. I see doc weekly so havent bothered buying one. I dont think there are any symptoms. x

    Hey, I had high blood pressure at the end and even started developing pre eclampsia and I had no idea that I was having that until the midwife checked my bp and my urine and when there was proteine in it, I got sent to hospital and 2 days later I got induced. I kept the high blood pressure until a week and a half a go (so nearly 3 months in total) and I could not really feel any difference. I think that is why you get checked a bit more at the end of pregnancy because you cannot really feel it.
    Good luck

    Bad headache, feeling dizzy and blurry vision can indicate high BP.

    If you do buy yourself a monitor, be careful about using it too much as that can cause your BP to go up too.
