I did call the doctor today….

I’ve been keeping a log of my blood pressure. It’s been just crazy. Here’s how it’s been today:

9am – 144/112, pulse: 103
11:30am – 133/104, pulse: 102 (I called the doctor right after this one)
12:30pm – 150/100, pulse: 124 (this was after I took a shower – the most I’ve done all day)
Around 2pm, the doctor’s office called me back and told me to double my bp medicine. I took one pill after the phone call, and the second pill at 7pm)
3pm – 134/97, pulse: 105 (the best it’s been since I got the bp machine)
8:30pm – 164/112, pulse: 96 (this is an hour and a half after having the second dose of medicine!)
11:15pm – 151/112, pulse: 102

I just can’t win. That bottom number just wants to sky rocket. I have done nothing today… except take a shower. My feet are still extremely swollen, and I just feel miserable. It’s been almost a week, and I’m no better than I was the day after I had Parker.

I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow afternoon. I’m hoping I can get some answers. This is just ridiculous.

If you’re a prayer, I’m begging for prayers. I’m really worried about this, and I’d really like to see it resolved. I’d like to get back to being a mom to my kids and get my butt off the couch. So, your prayers are coveted. I’ll thank you in advance.

I’ll let you know how the appointment goes tomorrow.

    Angie, I sure hope this gets better for you. My mother had high blood pressure after the birth of me, she’s been on bp medicine ever sine. But…she didn’t have toxemia.
