Just curious how far along and your most recent BP reading.

I checked mine as I had PE last time and 105/55 at 34 weeks. I'm usually around 125/70. Feel pretty dizzy/tired constantly so curious how normal this is and how it varies.

I was 119/60 at 36 week appointment. Yours isn't too far from normal but it's also normal to be dead on your feet at this point in pregnancy. At 16 weeks my GP was 85/45 I did feel shit then!

Raxacoricofallapatorius Tue 05-Jan-16 18:13:05

Mine was always 80/50 in pregnancy. It's 96/66 usually.

Me624 Tue 05-Jan-16 18:15:34

Mine has been 100/60 at every single appointment I've had since booking in. I'm 31+4. Yours sounds normal but if it's a drop from your usual levels it may be causing you problems. Has your iron been checked, you might be anaemic.

I'm 14 weeks today. Yesterday my dp was 135/100. At my booking in they took 4 readings all high. I'm starting on meds on friday... I feel unbelievably shit about it.

That's frustrating so early frika but good to get it sorted now.

Champagneformyrealfriends Tue 05-Jan-16 18:56:33

Just had a look! At 24 weeks it was 100/70-I'm 26 weeks now xx

At the 12 week scan mine was 84/56 and it seems to be hovering just under the 90/60 mark now at 15 weeks. I've been monitoring mine though as it makes me dizzy. I do have a pregnancy-related DVT though so don't know if that affects it. Hope you feel better soon.

I'm 27 weeks and it was 104/85 or something.

Up to now it's been about 90 something. I do feel rubbish!

Icklepickle101 Tue 05-Jan-16 19:22:48

115/78 today at 36+5

I am on tablets for pre eclampsia/blood pressure though, after 149/106 at 29 weeks sad

Oh no ickle is it Magnesium Sulphate? I had to take that during labour and 6 weeks afterwards. Glad it's improved for you smile

29 weeks - at my 25 week appointment it was 95/55 and it's been similar throughout.

ALR123 Tue 05-Jan-16 23:14:50

39 weeks and it's the highest it's been for me... 105/80
It's consistently been 90/60 (apart from booking where it was 80/50)

bippitybopityboo Tue 05-Jan-16 23:49:29

I'm 12 weeks and at my booking appointment it was 118/82 so she said it's a little high. It worrys me!

nehagarg Wed 06-Jan-16 07:34:08

100/66 and 20 weeks. My pre and post pregnancy BP hasnt changed though.

Nicky333 Wed 06-Jan-16 08:28:17

I'm 20 weeks and mine is very low. The midwife was worried about it at my first appointment until I explained that it's always been very low. It's not changed so far.

strangerjo Wed 06-Jan-16 09:33:46

31wks 119/67 which is the highest it's ever been. It's normally very low so I'm very concerned.

Mermaid36 Wed 06-Jan-16 16:38:19

I have essential hypertension anyway and am medicated.....of course, MW didn't realise this and freaked out when taking my BP at 8 weeks 150/85

I had to point out that this was actually low for me. Without medication, my BP is normally around 190/90 ish.....whoops!

strangerjo Wed 06-Jan-16 16:54:25

I had my bp again today. 131/67 twice (very high for me) then dropped to 117/something then 108/sixty something. I've no idea what's going on with it.

frikadela01 Wed 06-Jan-16 17:35:43

mermaid my consultant suspects my hypertrnsion may be preexisting. Not sure how it'll affect my pregnancy but I guess we'll see

Mermaid36 Wed 06-Jan-16 17:51:50

I'm on a middling dose of Labetalol (sp?) and have been told there is room to up the dosage if required during pregnancy (I'm 11 weeks)

frikadela01 Wed 06-Jan-16 17:53:16

That's what I'm starting on I think. Have to pick it up on friday. All a bit scary tbh.

Mermaid36 Wed 06-Jan-16 18:05:47

Nah, it's fine! I've been on them for over a year now

insideout Wed 06-Jan-16 18:18:56

15 weeks and 138/85 ,brilliant for me as had PE in both previous pregnancies. Seeing consultant in a couple of weeks to sort out meds for later on.....
