Today was horrible, I had to be monitored for a few hours due to two really high initial blood pressure readings at the dr's office today. I always have severe panic attacks when I get my blood pressure checked or hooked up to any monitors. Everytime the bloodpressure cuff would start to measure my vitals my heart rate would always increase which would cause my blood pressure to rise. They let me go because it eventually leveled out by I hate having to worry about this. I feel like I'm alone in this and the doctor's don't understand. The Dr that saw me today said that that the longest that she would let me go through the pregnancy is 39 weeks which causes me even more panic. I'm currently at 35 weeks. I feel like a nut case and just wish I could stop worrying about my blood pressure and heart rate. I would love to just be able to relax when I'm getting my vitals taken. Is there anyone going through the same thing? The baby was great which is wonderful and I'm incredibly thankful for.
