Hi I am interested to hear what other people's blood pressure is around the 34 week mark? I feel mine is high and that I am being paranoid.
Thanks in advance.

My OB was concerned when BP went over 140/90. I didn't have pre- eclampsia but had pregnancy induced BP which at one stage was 170/110.
What is your BP?

The past couple of days the lowest has been 125/89 and highest 153/93.

Have you spoken to your Ob or MW? A sign of BP problems in pregnancy is it rising and dropping frequently also.

I am on methyldopa and have been since 16 weeks, had pre eclampsia with DD. last Sunday I went to hospital after testing for protein at home. There was a slight trace but blood tests came back clear.
I have an ob appointment on Tuesday so I might wait till then to discuss it.

I hope this doesn't turn into PE again for you and they can add an extra medication to stabilise it. I was on aldomet and gee it made me feel sick. Best of luck for the remainder of your pregnancy..

Have you got a machine at home? I'd say if you have a reading like 150/95 for a few hrs in a row, I'd call ur midwife and get checked. Better to be safe.
I've been heavily medicated on 4 drugs since 16 weeks and mine will spike at about the same 140 or 150/90 but then it comes down again ( I'm meant to be on bedrest). Maybe watch out for bad headaches and talk to the Ob about any warning signs. My specialist said that at around 35 weeks is usually where it goes pear shaped.
Hopefully since you are getting to the end it holds off from getting worse and you don't get PE.

Yes I have a machine at home and check it morning and night. Check it today (afternoon) it was 120/88. All over the shop at the moment. I have black spots/streaks across my eyes but nothing else.
