Yes Sherry those are high bp readings, I hope they get better for you and baby! I would go to L&D if they don't get better or progress. Let us know what the dr. says.

Hoping you can hold on for a little longer.

Yikes Sherry. If anything comes up please call in or head into L&D earlier than your appointment. Those are some high bps that you have. Take care of yourself and let us know how you are doing.

Oh no!! I'm so sorry to hear your BP is already going up. That stinks. I'm glad you are keeping an eye on yourself.

Update when you can. I'm sending you low BP vibes and low protein vibes. You need a couple more weeks if you can get them.

Iam exactly 35 weeks today about the same time i started to go down hill last time.. My doctor and my peri are on vacation go figure! and both have fill-ins. This is what happened last time.. my dr went on vacation and no doctor would do anything about my pe. So its kinda making me nervous. I have been on bedrest since my dr apt this past thurs. When i went to see my peri on fri my bp wasnt too bad but my pulse was 140. So i haveto have a heart echo this thurs if i make it that far. I havent been a good bedrester at all,i had to do some shopping this weekend and i had a bb shower yesterday. I almost went to the hospital last nite my bps were 169/100 or at least 150s/high 90s and i couldnt get them down with rest. But Iam trying to hold off for my appointment at 130 today. And hopefully my 24 hr urine results should be in from the one i turned in fri. My bp already this morning is 154/100. So if im not on here in a while im probably having the baby or in the hospital. I just hope that they get the baby out before i get worse or something happens to the baby and im not just left go like last time til my dr returns from vacation. Ill update asap.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

update.. So i went to my apt yesterday. and was sent to the ER for shortness of breath.. my bp was 140/100.. the triage nurse asked are you nervous ? im like no i have high bp! they did chest x rays, blood work, and sonograms of my veins in my legs.. everything looked ok..i was sent up to l and D and spent the night. But of course i got the typical lay on your l side if the machine is about to do a bp reading... how frusterating. I had extremely low bps while i was sleeping like 115/57! still my pulse was aroung 90s sleeping. This moring when my doctor came to see me i said i want to do a bp sitting.. and of course it was 155/96.. also had a heart echo and it looked ok..i had a few nsts and a bpp. and my last 24 hr urine from 4 days ago was only 272. And im only a finger tip dialated as of mon. i think my dr would like to induce but just cant justify it without having a good reason. I have an apt in 2 days wiht the specialist.. and then one with the obgyn.. so maybe they can find a reason to induce by then. So i can avoid getting so bad again! also as i posted elsewhere my platelets are 119..
