What you're describing is almost exactly what I went through in my first pregnancy. Even though I had so many warning signs, I didn't meet the diagnostic criteria of 140/90, so my doctor blew me off. He never checked urine or blood beyond a dip test, so you're already being more closely monitored than I was. When I finally did get diagnosed, I was critically ill. If I were you, I'd keep pushing to repeat the tests often. If you never do get PE, no harm done. But if you do, you'll know as soon as possible and be able to get appropriate treatment.
