Hi I'm 17 and 32 weeks pregnant, i've been feeling headachey and out of breath recently, i took my BP and it was 145/60 and my pulse was 105 beats per min.. Is this normal or high? I've been feeling ill lately and haven't been doing much, but its normally lower then this and i am generally healthy! Help please!!
As you're 32 weeks you can contact the delivery unit at your hospital and run things past them. If your BP has gone up and you've a headache I think you could do with seeing somebody tonight tbh. Are your hands or feet puffy at all, swollen up?
if you usually have a lower blood pressure and it increases abruptly I will call the hospital or your midwife. Not to scare you but I had preeclampsia with DD at 30 weeks and the first signs were headaches and increased blood pressure
Right well I think you need to see somebody. Is there anybody around who can give you a lift? Ring Delivery and tell them you're 32 weeks, feel unwell, took your BP (I assume you've a home monitor?) Tell them it's up and you've swelling in your legs and you would like to come in and be monitored for a bit. Don't take no for an answer btw. Baby moving around ok?
