    It's pre-eclampsia, pre-eclamptic toxemia. Try not to worry, your blood pressure is still really good, mine is usually about 130/80 and goes up to 140/90 when i'm stressed.
    Good luck x

    From what i can find on the net, anythin out of the norm for that person is cause for concern, even if its in normal limits. Which is quite high 'for me' so im startin to panic a little.. I dont have any swelling though which can only be good

    I haven't had any protein in my urine but my pre pregnancy BP is 90/60 and has been 125/82 for that last few weeks. I was having headaches and such too. Hope it's not preeclampsia for you.
