I went to the doctor today and my blood pressure was 148/68 and my pulse rate was 100. My doctor told me I was "marginal" for high blood pressure.
I haven't gained any weight in between my last doctor's appointments. I've gained like 20 pounds total and I exercise daily and eat healthy. My mother had extremely high blood pressure when she went to deliver me. ( Although I have not told my doctor that... because I didn't know till I told her about my appointment today.) Anyways... what could have caused this to happen all of a sudden? How close is this to high blood pressure? What else can I do besides what I am already doing to prevent this? Is this bad for the baby? I may just be getting too excited since this is my first, but if anyone has any ideas please let me know! Thanks!
