I think it may be worth calling your doctor and maybe going to L&D just to have labs run and maybe start a 24hr urine. As you well know, better safe than sorry, and if all checks out ok, you can try to relax the rest of the weekend. :)

I understand how you must feel- been through the same thing over the past weeks. Calling the doctor never hurts, especially if you'll worry the whole weekend by not calling. Perhaps they can reassure you, or maybe they'll want to check it out- either way you might feel better.
Good luck.

BP on the rise..???

Postby mandy0913 » Wed Jan 03, 638610 7:31 pm

I feel like the other shoe is falling. My BP has been up a little for the last three days. Today has been the worst, the last reading was 143/85. Over the last few days it has been trending that way with high 130's over high 70's. It is much lower when I lay down, so I know that is the answer. But still scared. Should I just lay down and call doc on Monday with the increase in numbers or should I call now??? I don't have any other signs, the only other complaint I have is dizziness. No swelling, headache, visual probs, or URQ pain. Scared, don't know what to do. :(
