Im 39 wks and my dr tells me that my BP is starting to go up, but could have been spiking throughout the pregnancy. Anybody know what the possible effects are?
That above link is the US Dept Health - Heart and Lung - on High Blood pressure during pregnancy. Just high blood pressure on its own can cause preterm labor (obviously not a concern for you), and is more of a risk to the Mom. A girlfriend of mine nearly stroked out on the table. Thankfully, pregnancy induced hypertension is easily solved by giving birth :) Good luck Momma!
