  1. Do you have a fetal heart monitor at home? If not I would highly suggest you get one, pronto. I have read somewhere that fetuses can sometimes show signs of distress days before having this sort of horrible accident. If you listen to the baby every day, you can track any changes in heart rate, and if there are any perturbances you can get to the emergency room and they can help you. Here is one link, here is a better one. Good luck!

  2. Eating salty foods, gaining some major weight, taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) has been linked to rises in BP and is safe to take throughout pregnancy, increase your water intake, and compression stockings (panty-hose) all help with low BP.

  3. My blood pressure has always been on the low side. One thing always makes it read higher for me though… caffeine. When I was pregnant, on days I had dr appts, I don’t drink my latte/coffee until afterwards because pregnancy itself put me into the normal range and the caffeine would put me in the higher end of normal sometimes and then I’d get lectured.

    Not that I drank a lot of caffeine when I was pregnant (no lectures, please! ;)) but I NEED it at least in the morning, it helps with my migraines.

    Don’t worry though, everything will be fine. You’ll make sure of that; I have complete faith.
