  • Yes. If you discovered it at one of those drug store things, call your doctor. If you discovered it at the doctor's office, he will help you monitor it.

  • high blood pressure is bad anytime reguardless of pregnancy. If you have/or think you have high blood pressure you should call your dr. He would know more about your pregnancy, overall health and ways to control it.

  • Most women's blood pressure increases somewhat during pregnancy because of the extra blood volume your system is circulating. If it rises more than the norm or spikes suddenly, it could indicate some serious problems. Your doc will monitor it as one indicator of how your pregnancy is going.
