    Oh wow that is really low. Do you get enough sleep? Maybe you can add a bit more salt to your diet. I have natural LB but once I had 89 over 48. It was due to lack of sleep and pushing yourself too hard. I wasn't pregnant at the time so I drank some red wine and added more salt to my diet. I was at home for 4 weeks! The GP told me it sometimes take longer. I slept like the dead for the next weeks and started exercising a bit. It helped and was back to work after 4 weeks.

    Hey thanks for the reply.
    My bp is normal around 96 so it is usually a bit low.
    I have quite a "high" salt diet as it is.
    I wasnt aware sleep affected your bp. I've suffered from insomnia for about 9 years now. Im actually sleeping better since getting pregnant. Lol

    Got a doctors appointment for tomorrow to see what they suggest!

    Thanks x
