all pregnancy my bp's have been pretty normal averaging 115/68 ... On saturday i went to do my O'sullivans test as i hit 24w and bam my bp has started to record higher hovering between 130/90 and 130/93 when i just wake up ....after my morning heparin injection and aspirin between 120/84 and 120/87 ...im not feeling sick just not quite right my head feels heavy and i have slightly puffy eyes and slight swelling in my fingers ..... i had early onset last time around and maybe im just turning into a paranoid wack job or something but i cant get my anxiety under control and this is beginning to freak me out ... do i call the doc at this stage ? am i freaking out for no reason ? anxious

I would call, better to be paranoid and checked out than not checked and something be wrong. I am only 13 weeks but know when I get closer to those "scary weeks" I'll be the paranoid lady calling! I had early onset last time as well that went on for a while before I went in and forced them to check me. You have every right to be paranoid about your baby and body!
