You are probably in the process of developing preeclampsia. You blood pressure is increasing and you have proteinuria. I would expect that you will be diagnosed before you reach 40 weeks.
You might best be seen frequently - this week. You should be aware of fetal movement every day. Your doctor will probably initiate fetal monitoring. If you have headache, nausea and vomiting or abdominal pain, you should be seen right away.
