  • Get plenty of sleep and push fluids- maybe you are just coming down with something...

  • Call your doctor. They may want to do a stress test where they put you on a fetal monitor just to make sure the high BP isn't affecting the baby. Or they might want you to be on bed rest for the rest of your pregnancy. I had high blood pressure and ended up being induced at the end of my pregnancy. I am sure everything is fine, you are far enough along that you could deliver if you need to, but definitely check with your doctors and see what you should do. Good luck and feel better Mama!
