    I'm so sorry. Stress is not good!

    My DH actually started juicing beets with our juicer this week. Apparently it does wonders for lowering your blood pressure. Not the nicest stuff in the world, but DH said his blood pressure today was a good bit lower than it usually is, and he has been drinking beet juice every 2nd day for a week.

    I'm sorry you're stressed! I wish I had some super ideas on how to lower your BP, but other then just try and relax (and let DH take over more of the "home" stuff in the evenings) I don't really have much...

    Like I said on FB try to eat less sodium and fat. Try to do some research on diet to lower blood pressure. Also, de-stressing is very important. I know you're always so go go go, but if you could find a way to slow down, it will go a long way. Delegate tasks and/or decide on things that really don't NEED to be done before baby comes and taken them off your 'to do' list. Take it easy!

    Definitely reduce your sodium intake and drink lots of water

    When my BP shot up with my first (turned out to be pre-e so nothing helped), my doc said sit on my butt, do nothing, and drink water like it's going out of style.

    your stress from work might be morphing into stress about your bp

    Along with the diet stuff, do you enjoy yoga or anything that could relax you and take you mind off of everything? THat might help a little bit when coupled with the diet suggestions in pps
