I was recently given the chance to review this fantastic blood pressure monitor. Its full name is the Ozeri cardio tech premium series BP3 upper arm blood pressure monitor with intelligent hypertension detection.
My Dad has suffered with high blood pressure for a number of years now and he’s always had a monitor at home. So in the past I’ve used his if I ever wanted to check my blood pressure. To have my own to use it great though especially being pregnant. I suffered with dizziness a short while ago in my pregnancy and I was able to get this little monitor out and check my blood pressure which was fab.
Whats in the Box??
- The monitor itself
- The arm cuff
- A zip bag to store it all in

Cardio Tech products from Ozeri offer clinically proven technology and are used by Physicians and hospitals around the world.
This particular one is so easy to use and very simple to understand. Once you have taken your blood pressure there is a scale at the bottom that tells you if your blood pressure is Optimal, Normal, High-normal, Mild, moderate severe. You get your pulse rate given per minute as well. I love the fact the screen isn’t full of loads of stuff you really don’t understand. It is so easy to read for anyone and is so simple to use.
The picture above shows the screen after I have taken my blood pressure. As you can see it gives the pulse rate per min over on the far right hand side. It gives your blood pressure reading 102/73 and from the picture you can’t see too well but the scale along the bottom shows it is optimal. Nice and easy and simple to read I am sure you will agree
You just put the cuff on your arm, make sure the monitor is set to your readings if 2 people are using it, press start and the monitor then takes your blood pressure.
Overall I would 100% recommend this product as it is easy to use, compact so you can take it anywhere with you it is very accurate and also looks nice.
This product is currently available to buy on Amazon at £49.99 which I think is a great price for this monitor. This product gets 5 stars from us.
This weeks Pregnancy Linky is looking forward to seeing you all linking up xx
Yesterday we went to our local Nature Park Ferry Meadows. It’s a really lovely place for the kids to play. There is a little train, trails for the kids to do and some lovely walks and play areas.
Recently they have spent some money making one of the play areas really nice for the kids. It’s all sand under foot and their water areas for the kids to play and buckets and spades provided. There is a brand new Water Sports centre just opened as well. You are able to hire boats, pedalows and canoes and go out on the open water.
Little man and his friend had a fab time. They really loved playing in the water and the sand. The weather was lovely and we sat and had an ice lolly then went on the train.
If you’re looking for a day out it’s a fantastic place to visit. There are lovely green open spaces for picnics and BBQs.
There is a fee for parking at weekends and school holidays but weekdays are free.
This is my last week of being 20 something weeks pregnant. In the words of my Little Man Wowzer. Where has the time gone to?
This week sees me being a moany bugger, moaning about everything. I can’t sleep as I can’t get comfy, my hips really hurt all the time and my back is no better either. Plus I don’t get too much sympathy as I’m pregnant not ill as I keep being reminded.
A few days ago baby was moving about quite a bit. A friend of mine had said if I shine a light on my belly the baby will kick at the light, so I decided to try it. I put the light on my IPhone on and put it on my belly and baby went crazy. Was really funny felt like baby was going crazy inside my belly. Have any of you ever tried this?
So baby is now about 39 cm long from head to toes. I’ve read that baby wont grow too much more but will just gain weight from now till birth.

Hope you don’t mind me changing the Linky day to a Sunday. On a Friday I’m so rushed around with work, it’s a struggle to get it done in time.
Last week we thought we had a massive problem on our hands. Jess the cat went missing, she’s a teddy cat that Little Man takes everywhere with him.
Shes a black and white cat that we got in France when we went on Euro Tunnel for the day.
last week I remember Little Man had her on Monday in town. Then my mind went blank I couldn’t remember where she had gone. By now it was Wednesday and thank god Little Man hadn’t mentioned her. He had been busy with his teddy and so Jess was forgotten about for a day. Once I realised she was missing I went into total Panic and was quite upset about it.
Every Thursday Little Man takes Jess to nursery so I knew he would ask for her in the morning. Which he did (was she found though?)
I started searching the house-top to bottom looking everywhere you could imagine. The other half was searching as well for the best part of 3 hours. I ten sat down and traced out what we had done one the day she had gone missing. I started to remember things about where I had seen her and I came to the conclusion she had to be at home.
Litte Man and Jess the Cat
By now it was 2300 and I really needed to go to bed as I was so tired, but I just couldn’t settle. Then out of now where I decided to look in the washing basket for some reason. There she was sitting inside the washing basket. I actually could not believe it. I was so happy I could have cried.
I went and put her in bed with Little Man where she was nice and safe. I really hope she wont go missing again as it was not a good time. I knew he would be devastated if Jess had been lost for good.
I think unless you have a child who has lost their favourite Teddy, you dont realise the kind of panic that sets in.
This week I had another Midwife appointment. This was the first week I was measured and I measure 2 weeks ahead of my date. Nothing to worry about though.
I’m really hating this stage where I always feel I am desperate for a wee, then I go and hardly need to go at all. Very annoying baby is pushing on my bladder all the time.
I am still not getting a lot of sleep as its so hard to get comfy. This weather has been making it worse too.
Really excited as this week our buggy is getting delivered to my Mum and Dads house. We decided on a Silver Cross this time and I’m over the moon with the one we chose.
We pretty much have everything now. Just need nappies, milk etc all things that we can get in a few weeks time.
When is everyone packing their hospital bag? I’ve not really even thought of doing mine yet and I can’t remember when I did it before.
Dont forget to link up your Pregnancy Posts
Sorry its a day late this week, been having problems with the website but all is now OK.
Hope your all linking up again this week. Think you will all agree its great all linking up and reading each others stories
At the start of this week the other half had the day off work. We didn’t really know what to do and the weather wasnt the best, so we decided to take Little Man to the cinema. We had never taken him before as he is only just 3 years old and thought he was to young.
We went in once the film was starting so he didn’t get bored and I had taken some treats for him to munch on as well. We went to see the Postman Pat movie.
LIttle Man was so excited and couldn’t wait to go in to see the movie. After about 10 minutes he decided he would rather be watching Sam and wanted to go home. The other half and I just looked at each other and thought oh God noooooooo. However after 5 minutes he was OK and watching the film.
After an hour and half the movie finished and LIttle man had really enjoyed it. I had said he loved going and wanted to go again.
Our first trip went really well and I will take him again. In the day time in the week though when there isn’t really anyone else there.
It’s that time of the week again, Linky time!!
I hope your all well this week and im really excited to see you linking your posts up.
Thanks all for participating in this linky. I think its fantastic that we can all read each others and get tips and ideas from each other.
