update/ blood pressure spikes?

I have posted in the past in regards to my non functional 2cm pituitary macroadnoma. Just a quick update/ ?.  I am now 31 weeks pregnant, will be having my baby at 37 1/2 weeks! Before my tumor was discovered I was expecting and about the same as far along as I am now when I experienced blood pressure spikes along with headaches. I don't get headaches always considered myself lucky in that regard. However, the headaches are back. There does not seem to be a trigger and to me it feels like a blood pressure spike. What correlation if any would be from the macroadnoma? Pregnancy? Anyone else experience a change in bp from tumors?

I had asked what type of tumor. Pituitary tumors do cause headaches. Depending on the tumor, it can effect blood pressure. You need to be under the care of a neuro-endo at a pituitary center. My tumor used to change my BP all the time and gave me heart issues.
A 2cm pituitary lesion should be removed - why is it still there and what testing has been done?
