I had my first OB appt today with my peri. My bp was 148/96, but both the dr and the nurse didn't seem too concerned. I was pretty nervous when I got there, and I haven't walked for a couple of days, so I'm going to attribute it to that. They did a transvaginal US and we saw the heartbeat and stuff, so it all looks good. I have to go back in 4 weeks, and I'm going to walk more and take the stairs at work and see if that lowers the bp. Just thought I'd update everyone!

Hope the bp was just because of being nervous. So glad you got to see your babe.

Hi,
I'm glad things went well.Hope that BP behaves! Why would walking more and taking the stairs lower your BP?
Take Care,

Hi Gloria,

My bp is always lower when I exercise. I know I should do it, and wa for quite awhile, but I get so tired, I've been slacking off! I took my pressure at home and it was 120/84. I'm going for a blood draw tomorrow morning and will have them take it again. If it's still high, I will ask to talk to a doc. Take care!
