I'm coming up to ten weeks and my blood pressure is so low I can't even have a shower without needing to squat down on the floor! I haven't managed to condition my hair as I'm so desperate to jump out and sit down. At my booking it appointment the poor midwife wasn't able to take my blood as she couldn't find a vein that would keep pumping. They're really thin and collapse. I'm not really worried as it's always been a bit low, and I know prep can make it worse, but any tips to increase it? It's starting to get me down (literally and figuratively!)
It has been around 80/50. I'm not sure of my heart rate. Before I got pregnant my resting hr was around 70. It rockets up to 190 when exercising, but that probably says more about my fitness level! I think 80/50 must be low for me as I've not felt this bad before. I'm pretty tall too which doesn't help! My veins are really thin. The hospital managed to get some blood but only a really slow trickle. It's a nightmare trying to have blood tests!
