Kaz, what signs are you having? I beleive the earliest known case of true preeclampsia was 18 1/2 weeks, but usually it doesn't occur untill after 20 weeks of pregnancy. If your blood pressure is becoming hypertensive before that point, normally doctors will consider it a sign that you have underlying chronic hypertension (meaning your body is headed toward hypertension that hasn't shown up yet and the stress of pregnancy brings it out).
