    I have just come back from my midwife appointment after being told that my blood pressure has gone up to 140/90 and my pulse is 128, even babys pulse was fast but she dismissed that after I said I was having a girl. I have being feeling really breathless, tierd and getting palpatations for a couple of weeks now. She made me an appointment to see my GP on wednesday to check it out. I just feel really neglected now and I'm just sitting here worrying. Anyone have any advice, I could really do with some. Thanks

    Hi kwain,
    Try not to worry, and get plently of rest. have a warm bath and kick your feet up while everyone else waits on you!

    Check out Ragnas post, she had high blood pressure and resting did the trick for her!

    Just come back from the doctors, I was there for 3 hours! My blood pressure and pulse have come down slighty but they are still high, she has also detected a heart murmur but she said they are common in pregnancy (didn't know that) Have had ECG and that was fine, just waiting on blood test results now. She is speaking to someone else to see if they need to see me again as it seems to be stressing baby out. Will find out later. Fingers crossed!

    Awww Kwain

    Check out my other posting bout High Blood pressure. Mine has gone right down through resting, resting, resting, lying on my left side and drinking loads and loads of water.

    Just been to Consultants and they are that happy with me they dont want to see me for another 5 weeks (when im 38 weeks)

    Try and relax and rest and you will be amazed xxxxxx
    Keep us posted. :0)

    Ragna xxxxx

    Hi there kwain I've just had my midwife and my bp has gone up to 139 over 90 I've been having probs with swollen feet&legs too, she rang the hospital to see if i need to go there but was told no I'm on the borderline just need to rest as much as poss and she will see me again next week. I think that if you feel unwell then get in touch with your midwife cause yr body usually tells you if something isn't right.. Hope this eases yr mind abit knowing you r not alone...
