Ever since my last appt., I’ve been anxious about my blood pressure. Normally it runs about 120/70. Last summer I was quite ill and had a high reading, which went back to normal shortly. Ever since the bfp I’ve had high readings at every single appointment, in the order of 140/90+. Usually it falls by the end of the appointment, but this last one didn’t. It’s the end of the semester, so stress abounds, but I was still worried, so T. went out and bought me an electronic home bp monitor. Last night before bed it was 117/78, and this morning when I got up it was 115/78. I’ll keep an eye on it but this is much better anyway. Writing down these little numbers in the back of my journal feels reassuring. I’m using the page facing those rows and rows of bbt numbers.
