She ask me to note the date of the first movement I feel in my tummy. what might be the reason for it? my BP is 110/80. Is it normal? Again I have a scan on next week.

Hi, In case of first pregnancy foetal movement sensations are alittle delayed.You will start feeling the same within two weeks. Your BP is on the higher side.You need to to reduce your salt intake and also take medications with your Drs advice.Otherwise it may lead to complications.
Good Luck
