PostSubject: BP during 2nd preg.   Tue 25 May 2010, 3:10 pm

I just had my 20 week scan and my BP was 124/78 which I know is within the normal but was back up to my booking in BP. I know this doesn't mean I will get PE but I'm just getting so anxious it probably doesn't help! I was just wondering if anyone has had higher BP during their 2nd pregnancy but never developed to PE. I know this doesn't change my journey but it may just help my state of mind. I know I was hot and anxious at the app. but I can't excuse everything. I've now got another 4 week wait before my Consultant app. and I want to be more relaxed for this!!
Thanks
Nicki

Hi Nicki,

If its any consolation to you - Ive know hundreds of women whose BP was high at their booking following PE and gone on to have healthy PE free babies!

Best Wishes
Liz

Thanks Liz, It does help. I think it is the fact that I can't see into the future and what will happen over the next 20 weeks, I can't control it and I am looking for every small thing! I've had a good cry which always help relieve anxiety and now I feel chilled again. Time for some yoga I think. You will def. be hearing from me alot over the next few weeks. I was just saying to my husband it really feels like I am going through exams again with the BP being the pass or fail (I know it's more serious than that- but I always got anxious with exams aswell!!)

Thanks again
Nicki
