High blood pressure

I am 35 weeks pregnant. I have very swollen legs and feet, my ankles are also painful. I have very painful lower back and left hip. There is a very sharp pain that comes and goes. When the sharp pain is there, my heart beats faster and am breathless. It takes a few minutes then it disappears. Are all these symptoms due to high blood pressure or its something else?

It could be high blood pressure, or just the normal symptoms of pregnancy.

But you should not take a chance if it is high blood pressure, becasue you and your baby could both be in danger.

I would go and have the blood pressure checked straight away.... dont take any chances PLEASE

I had high blood pressure with my first pregnancy and I was watched by the doctor. My daughters were fine by the doctor did what she needed to make sure. Knowledge is power. I would suggest calling and making an appointment ASAP. It is better to go and be wrong then to do nothing. I will be praying for you.
