    Silly question as midwife said it's nothing too much to worry about but at my 24weeks appt last week my bp was only 90/40. Has anyone else had bp that low :?

    thanks hun. didnt know if it could be low coz baby is having a growth spurt it would seem (or at least I am :lol: ).

    Midwife didnt seem that worried as long as I drink enough fluids and don't feint, just seems low to me as I know it's the bottom reading which counts more than the top

    I have suffered from low blood pressure for years and earlier on in pregnancy I was really bad. I was signed off for a week and my husband stayed home because one day I couldn't stand up from the toilet because I was so dizzy.

    The doctor didn't seem too worried, just signed me off and told me to take it easy. It is better than high blood pressure but I know it makes you feel pretty rough. :(

    My bp has been consistently 110/70 since I got pregnant, which I think means I have always been a bit on the low side...but one week about a month ago, I had gone up to 133/78, and that was a bad day! Back down again now...the nurse told me 110/70 was not too low and not to worry about it but I've no energy for things like stairs!!!

    But 90/45 sounds really low...take care of yourself!
