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.
