    you should get this checked babe, it can be a symptom of pre eclampsia i believe, although not on it's own.

    They mite be 'floaters', they can indcate the onset of Pre-Eclampsia. It will definatly need checking.

    It is a sign of high blood pressure, which can lead to pre-eclampsia, however, unless you are overweight it usually isn't as much of a concern...

    I would get it checked out, but in the meantime, make sure you arn't doing too much to raise your BP... And if you see spots like that make sure you go and lay down so you can lower your BP.

    That isnt terribly high... That is what my BP went up to, it has always been 105/60 range and all of a sudden at 30weeks it shot up to the 130/70 range... GD tests show I have it, and I have a family history of diabetes...

    But my baby is measuring small and I havent put on enough weight to worry... sooo go figure.

    My doctor told me the high BP and visual disturbances were from stress/too much activity and she made me stop work early.

    Floaters is the name of the flashing things that you said u have been seein in front of ur eyes.

    I wudnt say ur BP was too high mine is about 110/70 but mention all this at your appt as you may need sum extra monitoring.

    HTH :hug:

    bp sounds ok to me, depends on what it normally is, if the bottom number starts going up to 100 and over then you've prob got a problem. But i had pre-eclampsia and bp never went very high. Did they check your protein levels?

    I've had this occasionally - I think it might be a fluctuation in your BP if generally its ok. My BP is about the same as yours and as everyone has said 130/70 is fine.

    Just mention it when you go. x
