Pinhead preeclampsia with my first which onset at 8 months. I feel the same at 9 weeks as I did then but no swelling. Have a doc appointment tomo and have borrowed bp monitor and I'm taking go every three hours. Have laid still all day, eaten as normal and bp averages 148/95. Anyone else experienced this ? Worried to death

Try not to worry too much, my mw told me home bp machines often measure overly high so don't fully trust them. Try and drink plenty of water, get some rest and see what your gp says x

Thanks dizgin79
The doc was straight onto the consultant who was concerned. Have been put on Bp tablets twice a day and two weeks bed rest. Feel bloody awful. Think its cause of preeclampsia last time x
