high blood pressure? ?

I had an appointment today at the hospital with the doctor and my blood pressure was 135/85 the highest its ever been. Its usually around 110/80. The doctor wants to see me next week and wants me to do a urine sample I also have an ultrasound on Friday that he requested before my next appointment.  Im 32 weeks and he has made me so paranoid now about possible pre eclampsia and also told me to come straight to the hospital is baby isn't moving as much as usual.  Should I be worried??

That's a bit high for being pregnant, but try not to stress, that will only make it worse. My blood pressure has always been high, mine runs around 140/100 so I'm under close watch too. Your doctor is keeping a good eye on you. Try some relaxation techniques and watch your sodium intake, those both help keep mine lower.

I had an appt. today as well as was told I had high blood pressure. I was 145/85 (I think the bottom number was 85, I could be wrong, but 145 top number for sure, stupid pregnancy brain) I was told I'm a bit swollen around my ankles and peed In a cup and my results came out negative for preeclampsia, thank goodness, but they want to check again on my next weekly appt. If I still have high blood pressure and possibly do blood results If I have a neg. urine sample again 'cuz they said It could be some other problem Involving the Liver, didn't give me any names to go from though, I think they didn't want to scare me more than I already was/am. They told me to make sure I'm well hydrated 'cuz that may be the cause of my one time high blood pressure and not to worry. I know It's really hard not to worry, but we have to have faith! I have an u/s scheduled for tomorrow, so hopefully the both of us don't have any problems! And I'm 34+4.

An isolated incident of high blood pressure is common, not finding protein in your urine is a good sign :)
