Dear Vic,

You will need to be seen by a gynaecologist soon. Matters of blood pressure are totally different when pregnant. There is an increase in the amount of blood your body carries, plus a drop in blood pressure. This all causes the heart to have to work harder. Also, during pregnancy, a specific disorder can occur involving drastic blood pressure changes, so you really do need good antenatal care.

Don’t forget, though, that “indigestion and heartburn” is very common in pregnancy, and this could be the cause of your discomfort at night. This too, will need to be treated, as it can become a significant problem for a pregnant lady.

Good luck, I hope your pregnancy proceeds without complications.
