what number did you go into hospital for further monitoring/unrine/blood tests?
My hospital was a bit vague on when I should go in because I have no swelling, blurred/flashy vision or headaches.

It depends on your baseline. If your BP normally is 120/70, they only get worried if it goes up 20 above that, is my understanding. My BP was normally the above rate. At one point it was at 148/89 (or there abouts) and they werent too worried. I had swelling and headaches too. I had to do a 24hr urine analysis in my third trimester, but the results were normal. My BP was elevated until birth.
If you feel worried there is no harm in getting checked out

iI's been sitting at 120/80 the whole pregnancy and it was 160/80 at my last gp appointment. it has gotten up to 140/90 and that's when I first called the hospy, but the lady didn't sound too concerned at all!
foetal movements haven't slowed down at all either.
I'm not too worried at the moment, mostly because I don't have any of the other things that would indicate pre-eclampsia, but then I know everyone is different!
do you think the reason my bp might have gone up is because bubs hasn't dropped from under my ribs yet? haha I think I'm clutching at straws here, really trying to avoid being induced if possible. Of course I'll do what ever I can to get her out safe though.

BP and bubs not dropping aren't connected I don't think.
When was it 160/80? Have you gone into hospital after that to be checked? Did you ring the maternity ward about your BP? I think it's weird that they weren't worried or didn't at least organise for a repeat checkup. When is your next check up? Things can change with BP pretty quickly.

She said if I had any concerns at all to go into the hospital, but otherwise because it wasn't much over what it's been the whole pregnancy to just keep an eye on it and for swelling ect. my next hospital appointment is 40+3 and the lady said I should be ok to wait until then to go in.
