How high does your blood pressure have to go before the doctor sends you to the hospital? How far along?
I am 32 weeks and I have HBP (140/80 at my last visit). I was put on bed rest and I have been checking it at home, however I think my machine is broken! In a matter of seconds it will read anywhere between 140/80 to 160/120... It is obviously not right and not working. I feel perfectly fine, most swelling has gone down, no dizziness or anything, but I am scared that when I go into the doctor this morning it is going to get high again! Will they just continue to send me home to relax and stay off my feet as long as it stays around the 140/80 area? Or is there a chance they would send me into the hospital?? I am so not ready to have this baby! It needs to stay in and cook at least 4 more weeks!!!
