Well, technically, your diastolic (bottom) being 15 over your normal is high ... so yours is high. No wonder you feel bad!! Have you told your doc you're uncomfortable with the numbers? My baseline is 90s/60s and my OB agreed in my last pregnancy that 135/85 was too high for me and would warrant some kind of action. I would let your doctor know how you're feeling physically along with those high numbers. I'm glad you're being seen weekly, though!
Sorry for the bad week - I'll say a prayer for you!

Sorry about the blah week. I also start to feel crummy when I get to the 130s. I don't know any ways to talk 'em into meds. :) I guess the concern over making it too low outweighs the benefits? That probably doesn't help when you're feelin' junk though! I'm right there with ya feeling like complaining (trending in the 130s) and then feeling bad because that's not "high" and we're so lucky it's so "low". But when things have been difficult in the past it's hard not to be frustrated even with little bumps.

So I went in last week due to having plus three pitting edema to my legs and spikes in my bp. Dr ran all the labs which came back great except for my 24 hour urine having a little bit of protein at 330. Just as a precaution he is seeing me weekly-I guess I looked horrible at the visit. I am so exhausted. I think that I have lost my mind signing up for so much schooling this semester. Only 6 more weeks.

Wish my BP's would be a little lower. Any suggestions on how to get my Dr to RX me some BP meds to knock it down just a little. I think that I would feel much better if I could get around my baseline of 110/60 instead of 130's/80's. I know that its not technically "high" but it makes me feel so crumy. Sorry to complain so much ladies. Just needed to vent a little today. Hope everyone's pregnancy is going pretty good this week.
