I would keep an eye on it. If you are taking meds for your cold that could be pushing it up also. I hope the stress is down soon and you are sleeping more!

Agreeing with Trish. Mine will creep a little when I am sick and over tired.

Could be from lack of sleep & being sick but it's worth chatting with your Dr. about. It's not really high - just on the edge of high. Maybe check it for the next few days am & pm to see if you see a trend. (((HUGS)))

Okay ladies, so I am four months past delivery and have been off BP meds for about six weeks.Tonight I checked my BP and it was 130/90. Last week I got a cold from *. I am still coughing, also we've had some bad family stress this week and I've not been sleeping due to my 4 month friend who has decided he likes to get up and play for an hour or so at 3am recently. I have checked my Bps about once a week since going off the meds and they have been about 115-120/72-85.

My question is, should I freak? Is this pressure truly high? When I woke up this morning I thought to myself that it was high cuz I felt nasty. (When my BP is up i feel fushed and get the runs.. SORRY FOR THE TMI!)

Anyway, i think it warrents a chat with my doctor about possibly trending toward chronic. Any thoughts ladies? You guys are the best.
