I am 20 weeks pregnant with my second child and I am so frusterated with my doctor. The farther along I get, the lower my blood pressure gets. When I started I was a good 132/80 and now this week I am 100/60 with a pulse that is sky high in the 100's at resting. I feel very light headed, short of breath and just overall rotten. Just today I threw up all that I had so far. I have been to my ob and he says that my BP and pulse are normal! Maybe they are ok but when you see a gradual decrease in my history you would think he would do something..anything....I finally called my regular family doc and she did an EKG and said it was ok but ran some blood tests which I am awaiting results. I just want to know if this is normal or if there is anything I can do to get this BP back up and pulse back down. I can't even walk up the stairs without it skyrocketing to 130 and that worries me. Any help, suggestions or possible answers?
