low blood pressure

HI, I'm 21w and 1d pregnant and I'm feeling really good. I just came from the doctors and I was informed that I have low blood pressure. It was 95 / 65. I geuss this explains my occasional dizziness and why I'm always cold. Does anyone know if there are dangers to having low blood pressure for the baby?

I don't know for certain, but there is someone on the Aug. 2010 board that has low BP and her Dr. doesn't seem concerned. 95/65 isn't dangerously low. Mine was averaging about 110/70 until the 3rd trimester.

My blood pressure is always on the lower end and has remained that way during this entire pregnancy so far - was 90/60 until 34 weeks and now is 90/70.  My doctor is not concerned at all.  I remember reading that it is common at some point in pregnancy (I believe the first trimester) for the blood pressure to lower a bit.  As karenDiane mentioned, 95/65 is not dangerously low - more on the lower end of average.  I think it is very healthy blood pressure.

In fact, in a way you're lucky.  At the end of my pregnancy, my normally low blood pressure went to 140 / 90, and the doctors were on the verge of inducing me.  At least having it be a little bit low at 21 weeks suggests you won't have to face that problem.
