    High blood pressure!!?

    I started feeling that "blood rushing/pulsing in my head" feeling again so I decided to take my blood pressure.

    It's 132/102. That's high right? My head feels like its throbbing with so much blood rushing to it.

    Now I'm getting scared...what should I do??

    How far along are you?? I was less than 12 weeks pregnant when mine was averaging 140/100 and it took about 2-3 weeks to get it down. You need to let the dr know what it is if he doesn't already know so you can start treating it. I have to track mine at home because I have white coat syndrome really bad and mine is most always sky high at the drs office. I had the nurse check my cuff against hers to be sure it was accurate. I hope this helps. Let us know how you're doing

    I have high blood pressure - diagnosed prior to becoming pregnant and i take medicine for it. I monitor myself at home twice a day. My doctor has told me not to worry unless it goes above 160/100 because the goal in pregnancy is not to have low blood presure it's to keep it in a safe range. I would mention it to your doctor and see what he suggests.

    Thanks for your replies guys! I will continue to monitor my bp at home and I'll call my Dr on Monday.

    I am 10 weeks along. I am thinking that hbp doesn't happen until later in pregnancy...maybe.
