Thanks all. My systolic blood pressure went absoutely crazy in my pregnancy with Alice (reaching 230 mm Hg, despite max doses of 3 anti-hypertensives), whereas my diastolic never got above 100-110mmHg (which is still high of course, but not as extreme).

So I always worry about increases in systolic bp; every other one I have had this pregnancy has been below 120. But I know 130 is still potentially just normal day to day variation.

I have another appointment in 2 weeks time anyway.

Best wishes

Congratulations on having a little girl!

I have always heard that your top number can be effected by things such as stress and exercise, so many that is why it was up. For sure keep an eye on it, but hopefully it was just a one time thing.

GIRL.

I'm not often emotional now, but I cried when I found out; its only 15 months since my daughter Alice died.

Everything was fine at my appointment. BP 130/70 (I don't like the 130 systolic but as I'm usually around 120 its within the range of normal variation for me). Baby normal size and very very active; spent most of the time turning away from the probe and making things difficult for the sonograph (co-operated with the gender shots though).

This is like the calm before the storm; I'm having uterine artery dopplers in two weeks so I guess that might tell me a bit more. All I can do is hope now...

Thanks to all for your support xx
