could it be???

im only 7 weeks pregnant but i think my blood pressure is already high. my fingers are tingly and swollen i feel shaky sometimes and my face is swollen and i have a slight headache... this is my second pregnancy and my first i had pre eclampsia and hypertension. that only happened when i was 36 weeks pregnant so they induced me.... I know high blood pressure isnt good but what do the docs do when you cant be induced? im just scared. im sure everything will be ok.... but i just dnt know what to do... this is been going on for a week.

  • A friend of mine had very very very high blood pressure and so the doctors have her on medication for it. So far she is doing great so i wouldnt worry so much. Which this is coming from someone that worries over everything lol. Im just trying to be positive here. I would just talk to your doctor about these concerns as soon as you can. gl hun
