I was picking up a prescription for my DH today & decided to use the little blood pressure machine just to see how I was doing. I've gone from my normal approx. 112/70 to 138/79...I know that my systolic is now pre-hypertension level since it's between 120-140, but I don't know if I should be overly concerned or not. I ended up with severe pre-eclampsia at the end of my last pregnancy which is why I was checking it in the first place & now I'm all stressed out that it is coming for me again. I remember last time my OB said they get more concerned when you diabolic rises too high, but maybe this is just the beginning?? I've been feeling a little lightheaded the past few days so that might explain that(?). I have an OB appointment Tuesday.
Anyone with any knowledge on blood pressure that can shed some light on what's going on?
