Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
The BP is still low. The foetus will need more blood supply for proper growth. Due to low BP you can get very dizzy also. Get your Haemoglobin values checked. Take you Folic acid tablets as advised. Get regular checkups for your Pregnancy without fail. You may need medication from your Cardiologist in this regard. Delivery may be by Caesarian section especially if you are having symptoms like shortness of breath and palpitations, as decided by the Obstetrician.
