  • your blood pressure should be the same or only very slightly higher than before you were pregnant.

  • Normal blood pressure is 120/70.. So think you are fine. I wouldn't get worried unless the botom number is or get to 90. With high blood pressure you might have headaches,blurred vision,or lighted headed. Low blood pressure can cause some of the same symptoms, My daughters blood pressure is normally anywhere from 110/60 or 90/60 which can make you feel real tired.. But, if you don't feel well I would call my ob, could be someting else making you not feel well... Take care and good luck!!!
