Hi all.. 20, 27 weeks and a FTM...
I have my own blood pressure machine (brought it for my husband) and I had it out today to check someone else's blood pressure.. I had my test for GD last week and a midwife appointment on the same day.. When she took my blood pressure it was low, but that was put down to having to fast for so long and the blood tests..
Just to reassure myself of the latter I checked my own blood pressure today while I had the machine out.. It was 106 over 60... This made me worry a bit as I have been experiencing some lightheadedness and dizziness in the afternoons lately.. I've never been to the point of having to sit down or anything so I haven't really panicked too much, but paired with the low blood pressure I have some concerns..
(I'll def be making a Drs appointment tomorrow)..
I then had something to eat, continuing my day, and have taken it at various times throughout.. But they have all been around the 100 over 60.. I've just taken it again and it's still low (119/63)..
I don't know what this could be or if it is a serious issue? I know it's not GD as I was cleared for that.. But it has me a bit worried.. Any suggestions?
