Question About Low Blood Pressure

TraceyC - May 21

when i saw my community midwife on the 24th April she said that i had low blood pressure but nothing else about it. i had my first scan on the 15th May and they never checked my blood pressure then. does anyone know how often they check your blood pressure as i have been feeling a bit run down lately and a few people have said i look a bit pale and tired around the eyes even when i am getting plenty of sleep. i have also been suffering from headaches - roughly 4 times a week i get headaches that can last from half a day to a full day.

Usually they check you at every prenatal visit- once a month. You can purchase a small monitor at a pharmacy and monitor it at home if you are concerned. Good luck, hope you are feeling better soon.

I have low blood pressure too, apparently it gets lower as the pregnancy progresses. They check it every month. I feel dizzy or like I am going to pa__s out half the day I think!! It's rather annoying.
