my b.p is a little high

I went to my apt yesterday and the good news is my baby is head down( i am 37 weeks)! my b.p was 132/85 and my doc wasn't concerned, I have been anxious lately of course, it is getting time!! I don't show any other symptoms of possible preeclampsia, no protein or swelling e.t.c. Also I am in early labor stages, I hope it comes soon!! I checked my b.p this morning because I have a home one. It was 122/80. what do you all think?

Re: my b.p is a little high

I think it is probably okay since you have no swelling or protein. However, if you start feeling bad or notice any swelling in the face and hands you should call your doctor right away. You are very close now, so I wouldn't worry. Good luck with bringing your little one into the world!!

Re: my b.p is a little high

worrywort - I would not worry at all. I have had to be monitored for my bp since about week 28 or 29. On my 3/9 appt my bp was 140/86 and then last thurs 3/16 it jumped to 154/86 w/ a trace of protein in my urine. My doctor said that I am not fully pre-eclampsic but he did send me for blood work which I guess I will get the results on friday at my next appt. So I would not worry AT ALL - you are fine.

Your blood pressure is slightly borderline high and I wouldn't worry at all. You still have what is considered "good" blood pressure readings. When I had preeclampsia with my son, mine ran 150/110 and higher when I was admitted.

Best of luck to you!!

Re: my b.p is a little high

Thank you. I am just concerned because it was never high at all. my pulse speeds up sometimes and I feel like my chest tightens, I think I am giving myself anxiety, I don't know.
I really appreciate your feedback, It makes me feel better!!
