  • Your blood pressure goes up because your heart rate increases. Especially so that your pregnant, your body is working harder than ever.
    Your supposed to take your resting blood pressure when you do check your blood pressure.

  • I had a ton off issues with this when I was pregnant with my twins. Sometimes I would eat and I would have to lay down becaue if I got up I would pass out! I didn't have this issue with any of my other pregnancies.
