View Full Version : 98/54...too low?

04-06-2009, 04:44 PM
My blood pressure today was 98/54. My midwife asked if that was normal for me and I don't think it is. It was never that low with my other pregnancies. My pulse was also 100. I was really nervous and excited today though. I think it was just my blood rushing. I am hoping both will be a little better next time. Off to drink more water/herbal tea!!

If you think it's not normal for you, eat something salty it should go back up. I usually run low myself....

It's within normal limits. May have just been nerves, something you ate/didn't eat, time of day, etc. if it's not normal for you. I wouldn't worry:thumbsup:

Thanks, ladies. Considering that my urine told her I needed to eat more and drink more, it was probably that. It just seemed low. I'll have to start having a better diet and see if it helps in 3 weeks.

It's perfectly fine :thumbsup: I have super low bp during pregnancy and low bp normally. My highest is in the 90's/60's

Mine runs around there! If my top number gets above 100 when the midwife takes it we joke that I'm getting high blood pressure.
