Im scared. Beyond scared actually. This is my third child. 2 previous pre-e babies. I have had a headache for 2 days although it feels sinus. So i took my wrist at home BP cuff into the OB to learn how to use it right and their machine and my cuff read out 123/92 they aren't happy and im scared. This is way to soon for it to be like this. The OB is finishing up surgery and then will be back in the office and they will call me to come back in. Prayers please, I have so many scenarios for the next 4 months running through my head.

At 15 weeks it is probably too early for PE. But BP can go up any time. Let's hope it can be managed with BP meds. I used to have this annoying sinus headache when pregnant with my second baby. What helped was a combo of tylenol plus claritin. Let us know how it goes.

Sorry you are dealing with this. I know for me when I'm sick due to a migraine or sinus infection it can raise my BP a little temporarily. However I am a chronic hypertensive now.
Usually in subsequent pregnancies if pre-e does occur it strikes later in gestation and/or less severely. Hang in there.
