Has anyone noticed that their cholesterol levels went up with pregnancy?

So besides having a history of asthma and a lower immune system than others I have always been healthy. Low blood pressure, low cholesterol levels and such. I am only 26 but heart disease runs in my family so I get checked regularly. i am almost 24 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I still have a healthy low blood pressure, but I went to one of those wellness clinics and my cholesterol levels were at 260 which is not way high, but for me it is high.Has anyone else noticed their cholesterol levels rising with pregnancy?
