Alright ladies, here's what is going on. I'm 33 weeks 4 days I am having lots of low back pain, I feel like when I sit I am peeing myself, I don't know if it's Pee or water it has no odor. I also am having diarrhea if that matters and it's not a ton. Just after I eat something. I am a high risk pregnancy due to preeclampsia in my past. BP has been checked 155/94, 150/93 and then 153/82 and this over the course of 45 minutes. Checked it at 15 minute intervals. I've never had natural labor, one induced that led to emergency c-section and the next repeat. So Idk what I should or should not be feeling, all of this is brand new. Please help.

Your BP may be elevated because you're freaking out. Have you had any high BP readings before just now?

If not, I would suggest a warm bath to relax, a large glass of water and call your doc in the meantime. Don't fret it makes it worse.

Sometimes the increase in pressure just means baby has turned, I experienced it at 27 weeks this pregnancy and a freak out too.

I had preeclampsia my first pregnancy which has made me paranoid this pregnancy but I'm 35 weeks and no sign of it coming back.

I've already been hospitalized once 2 weeks ago due to signs of it returning. I took my BP because my hands swelled up really bad. I have 2 non stress tests a week and it's elevated every time. I can relax due to being at work until 715 am this morning. Sucks.

I would call your doctor, and if you are really worried, go in to the ER. If you have a hx of pre-e, better safe than sorry, because it can go bad fast.

I had my non stress test today and they left me hooked up for an hour. Baby looks good. They didn't say much about my BP. Swelling is worse. BP is the same. Sigh...and I even had to wear my DH shoes to work tonight
