Try not to read too much into these kind of signs, I just don't think they are good enough predictors of what will happen.

In my last pregnancy I had a great BP drop (normal for me is 125/77, dropped to 100/60 or even lower) for most of the pregnancy and everything looked good until the last few days. The BP drop clearly didn't help me much :-(

Sorry, I know how hard this is ...

It was taken with the same monitor, and the one at the doc was 129/80 and they didn't seem to be worried at all. I am just so jumpy and anxious I am probably just doing this to myself. I am praying for a pre-e free pregnancy and I am very paranoid about "signs" that I'll get it. thanks for the reassurance, I am glad I have everyone here to turn to.

Please ask your doc if you are worried, but that looks like a small increase, that wouldn't be enough to concern me. were they all taken with the same BP monitor? - I seem to vary quite a lot depending on who takes it and with what type of monitor.

Best wishes

I think a lot of people have a slight rise in their first trimester, then sometimes have a second trimester dip. I am not a doctor, but I wouldn't be concerned about that slight increase in the first trimester.

6 weeks PG - High BP Already?

I just found out that I am pregnant again after having a 33-weeker in 2008 due to severe pre-E. I have been monitoring my BP levels since I had him and they have been great, never above 117/75. Right after my BFP I had a few readings done and I am already 120/80, is this a sign of things to come? I realize it might be anxiety, but this seems like a bad thing to be happening already. I am very scared that pre-E will happen again. Is this early BP rise something to be concerned about?
