Fluctuating Blood Pressure 2nd Trimester?

I have only had two episodes of high blood pressure that I can account for, but has anyone had fluctuating blood pressure? I can feel it in my eyes and head, that's when I know I should test to see what my blood pressure is. Tuesday it was high, Wednesday low?

This is my second pregnancy, a little high but not alarming at the end of my first pregnancy.

I don't see my doctor until Monday. Anyone been through this?

Do you have a home blood pressure monitor? I got mine at WalMart for about $40 -- it's a wrist cuff. I would get one and start taking your BP 2-3 times a day and writing it down. Take it more frequently if you feel different, and note that in your journal. Show your doctor your notes so he/she can make an assessment.
