HI!

E-X-E-R-C-I-S-E !!!!!

Walking or swimming for 30 minutes a day should help both with mood and with blood pressure.  Your current blood pressure is not dangerously high, but I would not like to see it go much higher.  You WILL need to watch it carefully as you get close to your due date.  It should naturally go down a bit as you get into your second trimester.

Keeping the weight off, and watching salt intake are two other good bits of advice!
