Oh wow that does seem awfully low… mine has always been low too and I’ve read that during pregnancy your blood pressure gets lower. I don’t really have any tips on how to raise your blood pressure, but since you have been feeling lightheaded you could call your doctor and ask her what she thinks you should do. That seems like the best thing to me.

You sound just like me.  I always have low bp, but it seemed to get lower throughout pregnancy.  I didn’t faint at all, but right around 38 weeks I had a low bp ‘spell’ which gave me a lot of aymptoms of preeclampsia (blurry vision, etc).  I immidiately called my provider who told me to eat a salty snack to raise my bp.  Worked like a charm.  So I wouldn’t overdo it on the salt, but it does help raise your bp if you’re not feeling so great.
