Hopefully at your next bp check it will have settled down. Do you log your pressures from home and take them to the appointments with you? If not, that might be a good thing to start doing so that they can see what you are running at home when you are more relaxed.

oh! I hope your b/p settles down. Mine's been staying around 100-110/ 70s.. with the occassional 80 and no one says anything.. but I don't get to meet the ob until my 18 wk appt. But I've noticed the occassional diastolic of 80 at home too... hopefully yours is just white coat syndrome related. I think all moms with a history of pree would be a little anxious with b/p checks... I know I am.
good luck!

Good luck! I think that I have white coat syndrome too! When I went in last week, my first reading was 153/74. After laying down for a few minutes it was 112/64! Hang in there! You are doing the right thing by ckecking it yourself everyday!

16 week appointment

Postby first time » Thu Mar 22, 2007 11:09 pm

i went for my 16 weeks appointment today and my bp was 145/85. i think i have white coat syndrome. i check my bp daily and its again 113/75 range. i have no protein in my urine. i have cut my hours down at work and the md stated that if my diastolic keeps runnig around the 80-90s then i would have to go on a calcium channel blocker. i hope not. i also had an afp today . im nervous. but im determined to make it to august 31,2007 hopefully with a healthy pregnancy. [:)][;)] i had an ultrasound the baby was so active. i have to go back in 2 weeks for a bp check. i will keep you posted.
