  • It could be blood pressure or maybe you fighting off an infection.

  • I would bring it up at your next appointment but I dont think it is anything to worry to much about. If it happens very often then i would make a same day appointment just to make sure. But if it is not happening all the time i wouldnt worry about it. Congrats on your pregnancy!

  • Have you had your blood pressure checked recently?

    I know when my blood pressure was up during my other pregnancies my heart would pound like crazy.
