  • no i had that, stress my ass it is called preclamcia (google it) watch for swelling and water gain, cause me to have an emergency c section. it is dangerous when it is 200 on top or 100 on the bottom, you can have a stroke if it gets that high, they will put ya on bed restif that happens, good luck, pm me if you need any more info@!

  • i am really amazed they sent you home with the bottom number 110, i would call your fam doc or somewhere to get another opinion. some surgeons (ob's) are really set in ways of thinking, can be dangerous too!

  • it could be stress but i had preclamsia as well and they had to do a em c setion on me too at 34 weeks, if your doc thinks its okay then i wouldnt worry because if there wasnt a high number of protien in your pee then dont worry because in order to have preclamsia you have to have both
