I am so sorry to hear about your Grandma. My grandma actually passed away the same day that two of my girls did (Sophie and Gabriella). She died a few hours before they did. She and I were extremely close as well.

It's so hard.

So sorry about your loss. I was very close with my grandmother as well. I'm very sorry.

I hope you did call--those are high numbers and I know your grandmother would want you to take care of yourself--even though I know it's very hard right now.

Sending hugs.

((Beth)), I'm so sorry about your loss of your grandmother.

Please do let the people at L&D figure out if it's just stress or not -- especially since regardless of *why* it's up, having it go up can cause other factors to elevate and then the whole thing can snowball.

I'm so sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing.

Those are very high pressures that need to be evaluated properly, I'm afraid. Hitting those levels is cause for concern. Let us know how you get on.

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. What a horrible thing to go through at this time.

I know everyone is different, but it may not be stress that's causing your bp to go up. My bp is always wonderful when I'm stressed for some strange reason. I'd definetely call the doctor!

Yes, you need to call in. Even if it is stress that is making your bp's high, if your OB said to call in with those numbers you need to do so. I am so sorry for the passing of your grandmother. I will be thinking about you.

CALL! I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother, it must be so awful for you, losing a loved one is just the hardest thing in the world, my heart goes out to you. Please call the doctor, those pressures are really high, and you have a lot to deal with in the next couple of days, maybe the doctor can give you some guidelines about activity and what you can do. My thoughts will be with you and your family.
