  • At least it gives you an excuse to relax and put your feet up! seriously though, hope your bp is back to normal when you get it checked again. Do you teach by any chance? If so, returning back to work after the Easter hols is certainly enough to raise my bp!!
  • I hope that you have a few treats to hand! Enjoy putting your feet up!

  • hi no i dont teach im a classroom assistant in a class of 5/6 year olds!!

    thanks, i had a nap and going to do nothing til tomorrow, appointment 10.30am.

  • Hi Becs Hope you are feeling better. I have actually spent all morning in hospital with high blood pressure and protein in urine. I have not been right for past 3 days and have had the most intense headache.

    Anyway I got let out on conditions of bed rest as after the course of the morning my blood pressure had dropped to reasonable levels.

    All this at 25+4 weeks! They did think it was pre-eclampsia yet they did say it does not normally appear until around 28 weeks but as I am measuring 29/30 weeks it could have been.

    I will say get as much rest as possible, I am struggling my 2 girls both under 3 are being really naughty at the minute so I am going to stay at my mums for a few days to chill and my sisters can help with the kids.

    Take it easy.
