I am still new to pe ans am learning all that I can, but I do know that my bp generaly ran high. In fact they actually refused to give me birth control at a regular annual becaue it was high just a year or so ago. When I became pregnant it seemed to maintain 130/77, then in the second trimester it was 110/70 constantly. Now it has began to jump quite a bit even spiking 150/100-the doctor immediately reacted and started tests. I'm telling you this because it you started with a low bp pre preg and now it is so high you should definately be treated. It seems funny to me that they would let it go so long now. THey have found that my bp jump thus far is either streess related or it is the onset of pre-e(but unfortunately we have to wait to see). You definately need to be treated, and as I found out sometimes you have to demand it.
I hope that this helps you in some way.
