How much should I be worried?

Hi im amy im 19 and am due on 11th of September. I went to my 16 week check up appointment at the midwife on Thursday and had a high blood pressure of 150/96 then 143/98 and so was sent to hospital to be monitored and my bp went to 127/104 which i still high so they kept me in for 2 nights. My bp was normal all day on Friday and Saturday but from blood tests my AST value was 60 and my ALT value was 123, I also had a slightly raised white blood cell count. Ive had no other problems during the pregnancy although recently i had started to feel slight pains in my stomach area which im just putting down to muscles stretching etc. I was just wondering if anyone else has been in this position or knows anything about this? I want to know how worried i should be or if it could be nothing. I have to go back to hospital day clinic on Friday coming for a check up and more blood tests. Thanks for your replies.
Amy

I've just been induced for a similar thing, they should put you on medication I'm not exactly sure how they are going to handle your situation because they where going to induce me there n then if I got worse but I was further on then you :/

i had the same muscle pains at 16-20 weeks and when i saw my obgyn it was just my tummy growing from my baby. and it was fine. as for the bp i would not be to concered since it is going down. just drink lots of water and stay in bed. dont stress about any problems bc that will make ur bp go back up. try to stay calm and relaxed. i hope all is well.

Thanks for everyones replies! I an trying not to stress just now but its hard as i have my uni exams coming up in a few weeks! My urine was clear on the Thursday night but on the Friday morning it had a trace of protein in it. I spoke to my auntie whos a nurse and she said it sounds like a have a viral infection? The past 2 days ive been feeling a bit rundown so trying to just get through until my check up on Friday! Feeling a bit worried incase i get kept in again though!

I wouldn't ignore that pain seeing as it is accompanied with high bp

I'm with Beccabb, I would not ignore your symptoms, especially the high bp! I've had bp problems from the start with my pregnancy, and the highest mine has gotten is 164/117. I was put on medication and I feel so much better! Like someone else said, drink LOTS of water and make sure you go to the follow up appts with your midwife.
