What do you think??

I'm 33 weeks & the last 2 times I've been 2 the Dr.s I've had pretty high bp-145/100. I've never had high bp before & have no other signs of toxemia, but I've also been having nose bleeds almost everyday, seeing "sparkles", throwing up, & losing wt (about a pound a week). My Dr.s aren't 2 worried b/c I've always been kinda smaller (I weighed 120 before I got preg & now I weigh 135) but my bf like yells@ me 2 eat more & blah, blah, blah. Should I be worried, or just keep doing what I'm doing? Or has anyone else gone through something like this?

  • I would just listen to what your dr. says. Everyone says I'm really small for being 36wks, but I feel like a whale! Everyone is different. I've only gained about 17lbs so far, and my dr. doesn't seem worried at all. Try not to stress over it too much, it'll cause your bp to spike and if you already have high bp, you don't wanna make it worse.
