Even if your OB doesn't want to treat at this point, you can still insist on closer monitoring. Also, it makes a difference whether 140/90 is your high reading or your average. If you haven't done so already, take several readings throughout the day and chart them to show your OB.
FYI, they just lowered the bp standards for hypertension, so if your bp remains 130/80 after the birth, your regular doctor might want to treat it.
