@tnbellebee:  If you’re nervous or uncomfortable call again. If you’re still concerened and haven’t heard anything then maybe go in. It may be absolutley nothing but sometimes it’s better to err on the side of caution.

My doctor tells me that if I call with any concern and leave a message and don’t get called back within a half hour, I should just go ahead to the hospital and tell them what’s going on. I think that’s what you should do. 

(I’m talking about my OB–I’m assuming you’re pregnant.)

I would get it checked out, a girl in my birthing class is dealing with this now and her pressure was up last week, after a non stress test they decided to send her home and then again this week at the OB’s office they said her pressure was too high so they sent her back to the hospital where they are encouraging her to let them induce today. Her pressure is a little higher than yours at about 150/90 but it definitely warrants someone checking it out! They’ll probably just do a non stress test to check on baby.

I’m sorry to hear that you’re still struggling with your blood pressure. I think a nonstress test is the next logical step. They’ll hook you up to two sensors that will keep track of baby’s heart rate and whether or not you’re having contractions. They’ll also check your blood pressure every 10 – 15 minutes and see how it does while you rest for a while.

 

If it comes to needing medication, there are options that are safe during pregnancy (Labetalol and Aldomet are commonly used. I’m on Aldomet.) Or your doctor may want you on bed rest until you’re full term.

@tnbellebee:  I hate when that happens, you have issues all day/night than you go in and it’s fine while you’re there! but I’m glad to hear you and baby are both okay!! 🙂

@tnbellebee:  it’s always reassuring to know you did the right thing! But in the end, it’s better safe than sorry! goodluck in the last few weeks! Smile
