hi everyone..... i went to the hospital 2 nights in a row, and have had the same problem with my blood pressure. it got up to 170/84 the night before. but it is only when i work ! is this considered pre- eclampsia, or just stress, b/c the doc said no matter what i was doing that it should not go up high. i was wondering if anyone else had this problem ?? if so, did you have any other symptoms ?

Did your dr. say anything else besides that it shoul dnot be up that high? Did he mention pre-eclampsia or the word Toxemia to you? I have high BP and my dr. did tell me that I was exhibiting signs of PreEclampsia. I might have to be induced in a week or two at the most and I am only 34 weeks along (at this point)

well he thought he might have to take the baby 2 days ago.because it was so high, but he did mention toxemia. can they not draw blood to determin that though?

i got higher then that and it was when i had afternoon appointments and i worked all morning. i switched my appointments to morning to see if there was a change and YES there was. It was work related.....I am convinced of it.
