This happened to me in my 3rd pregnancy. I had a 24 hour urine come back with 700+ mg and was very swollen. (About 30, 31 weeks.) They expected the worst and gave me steroids for the baby's lungs and expected we'd have to deliver anytime. My blood pressure occasionally flirted with "high for me" numbers but never got super high. (My normal is 110/70's, it got as high was 130's/high 80's, and I did have a few high readings that were around 140/90 but they were readings that were far apart and never stayed high. Anyway, we made it all the way to 37 weeks, but it was stressful, I had appointments 3-4x a week the last couple months.
