That is prehypertensive, so it is slightly concerning, but you didn't post what you typically read.

It is definitely something to be concerned about, but don't freak out! As you near the end of your pregnancy, changes in BP are common. Do keep an eye on it, and make sure to call your OB first thing in the am



Seriously, though! Don't stress! This will increase your BP so just lie down and try and take it easy!

I have chronic hypertension, and my doctor has had me on Labetalol since day 1, since the other meds I was taking for blood pressure were not safe for the fetus.

The top number fluctuates a lot, to me (a nurse) it seems fine. The bottom number is what were concerned about (unless both are high or there's a huge difference) and your bottom number looks good. I wouldn't stress about that too much unless you start to hit the 140s frequently.



I didn't read but I'm also assuming your pregnant which means your top number is going to be higher than normal because you're moving around extra bloods. I hope that helps. :)
