So my blood pressure has been really high the last few days (150's/110's). I had an appt yesterday and they took it normally (manually by the pump machine) and it was still high. Normally high (140's/100's) but just seemed to jumped so they sent me to triage. They started monitoring me with one of the electric machines every 15 min. The first reading was 131/81 and this is right after I left the doctors. It was consistently low for me or normal for 2 hours. I didn't understand and neither did my doctor. Anyway, they sent me home.
I just took it again and it was high (155/107). I am not sure if there was something wrong with the machine at triage but it has NEVER been that low. I think I will call the doctor again this morning but wanted to get your thoughts. Oh I am 37 weeks today.
