krissy1980 - February 7

I had a doctor's appointment today, and all went well..except my blood pressure was on the high side.What does that really mean?All I know, is if it stays high to long, it's not good..lol And also, they measured my tummy and they said it was 27 cm..is that normal for being 26 and 1/2 weeks pregnant? I would find out, but I am not sure how many inches that would be..I am not a math genius in that aspect..lol I was gonna ask the doctor if that was good, but then we started talking about something else and I forgot..I assume, that since she didn't say anything really about it, that it is normal? Thanks ladies!

27 cm is pretty much right on for 26.5 weeks - you should be w/in 3 cm plus or minus from how many weeks you are (so 23.5-29.5cm at 26.5 weeks). The high blood pressure is an indicator of pre-eclampsia. I'm guessing your doctor will keep an eye on you to make sure it doesn't stay high.
