Blood pressure


33+4 weeks pregnant & this morning I started feeling “off” and my feet were swollen and my legs felt extremely tight so I took my bp which was 145/92.. called the on call doctor and told me to go to L&D. I did, got there, and bp was fine. No protein in urine/ blood tests came back fine. So I came home.

I was getting ready for church when I took my bp this morning, and after I seen how high it was I rested until I heard back from the doctor. Which was probably about 45 minutes.

When I got home from the hospital, I started doing stuff I normally do, and started feeling off again so I checked my bp again (they told me to when I feel “off”) it was starting to get high again.

I start feeling like this when I do the bare minimum— ex: walking from one end of my house to the other.

I’m worried I may be starting to develop preeclampsia which absolutely terrifies me. I don’t know what to do.

And since I’ve been resting, every few minutes my heart will start to race. And it just makes my chest feel weird.

Ladies who have developed preeclampsia— is this how it started for you?
