under pressure

My blood pressure has been creeping up over the past week or so. I’m hoping that I’m just fighting a virus (that raises bp right? right??) but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t pretty worried. I have an appointment with my MFM tomorrow so obviously I’ll bring it up to him then. It just sucks that my home cuff is 10pts higher on the diastolic (lower) reading. I may have to spring for a new (hopefully more accurate) cuff once my FSA for the new year kicks in because seeing the higher number, even knowing that it’s wrong, still freaks me out.
