    Hey girls...Just made hubby go to the docs after last nights blackout and sickness episode. I went with him ofcourse,just to make sure he was being honest with the docs.:haha: He has to go for some bloods and an ecg,but doc thinks its just viral. Anyway i decided to do my bp on the machine while i was there. It was 109/65,is this ok?:shrug:

    i'd say thats fine, its the bottom number u have to worry about, and 65 is around avergae, the other day i went and mine was 80, which is quite high for me as im only 19, but id say you have nothing to worry about with that seems fine and normal to me =)

    its perfect mine is usally 100/60 later on its 120/60

    when i had my scan it was 135/80 which she started to worry about but it was because of the scan and stress at end of appointment it had dropped 120/70 still a little too high

    but its the dysytolic (bottom) number you need to watch x

    120/80 is the max you'd want to hit. 109/65 is perfect. Mine is mostly 80/60, 100/60 and 100/80. Don't worry hun xxx

    My last bp with Bodhi was 120/80 would that be something to worry about?? My mw at the time said it was a little high for me but she wasnt worried. A week after that we lost Bodhi.:shrug:

    Nothing to worry about, if the diastolic goes above 90 then it would be concerning.

    everyone is different hun

    it depends what your baseline BP is when you arent pregnant

    my normal levels are 120/80 but some people are much lower so you cant really read anything into 1 measurement, you have to take it over a period of time to see whether it is higher/lower than normal xx

    ive started to get obsessed with my bp! Mine is 80/50 on a good day lately and despite constantly getting dizzy and having headaches....it not a cause for concern! but eveyr time i say I complain of something they say its coz of your low blood pressure so dont worry! xx
