I have posted on this before... anyways... I went back to the doctor today and my bp was 130/90. He said that was still pretty marginal for high blood pressure. Well, I've still had no swelling, no protein in my urine... and I drink plenty of fluids! (water and juices mainly--- normally just water!!) Does anyone have any ideas why my blood pressure could be going up the way it is... it was fine at first and is gradually going up to being marginal? When I wasn't pregnant my bp was always like 122/58-60. It doesn't run in the family nor have I had high bp before. Also, today and yesterday I was just sitting down and I got SICK AT MY STOMACH!! I mean I threw up, broke out into a heavy sweat, couldln't breath hardly and then my ears felt like they were closed (?) and I couldn't hear hardly. (This may be something totally different... I don't know!!) So... I was going to ask my doctor while I was there today and I forgot to because I also found out I was positive for Group B Strep (so they'll give me antibiotics during delivery for the baby!) I forgot to ask my doctor about the stomach sickness and bp because they made me take a non-stress test today. I have to take them every Tuesday and Friday until she is here because of my bp. Does anyone know what is going on and why this is happening?? Please, help explain this or tell me a little more about these things if you can! I am so worried!


**( My doctor told me today that IF my blood pressure stayed at marginal or went high... my baby girl is big enough to be considered full term and he believes she would be very healthy!) Could he be giving me a hint?? **

I went to the doctor at 11:40a.m. and my bp was 130/90.
I took it at home and at like 5:30 it was 144/88.
Later at like 8:00 it was 133/86.
( Just in case this means anything!)

My BP did the same thing during my first pregnancy. My Dr at the time didn't even bat an eyelash at it. I even asked and he said it was within normal so not to worry. After i had my daughter i started on BCP and my blood pressure started going up and up. Before i was able to get it under control (about a month) i got a permanent blind spot in my left eye. We got it under control with meds. I got pregnant with my son when my daughter was 8 months old. I took myself off the meds and my BP stayed down just fine during the whole pregnancy. After i had my son it shot back up very high. This was while i was still in the hospital with him. I am still taking meds for it now. There has been no reason given to me for why it has done this. I am overweight. that is the only reason for it. the closest thing my Dr has told me to being a why it happened is that pregnancy might have triggered something in my body.

I hope things turn out a whole lot better for you than they have for me.

It's very common for BP to go up late in pregnancy. Also if you were concerned about it anyway, anxiety can raise BP. Since it went down later, this may the case. Mine was considerably higher than yours, but I had no other symptoms of pre-e. My OB let me go on my own; she just watched me a little closer.Unless you're wanting to be induced, I would not agree to it unless your cervix is favorable. If your body isn't ready, it increases your chances of a c-section. As far as getting sick, I find that happens to me if I get dehydrated or over-heated. The baby could be on a nerve or something too, since it's happening when you're sitting. I was Group B Strep positive with my son. I was just on an i.v. for antibiotics when I went into labor. If your water breaks at home, get to the hospital though, so the can start the antibiotics. Goodluck and keep us updated.
