update on seeing stars question

Well after talking to my Dr more indepth after I started getting worse he had me go in to the walk in to get my blood pressure checked and sure enough it was quite a bit higher than what my blood pressure normally runs. I run at 93/63 have never gone over 98/65 but my blood pressure was 115/75, so I will be constantly monitered now to make sure I am not developing preecclampsia. Even though that is still within normal ranges it is high for me so Dr just wants to be sure, especially since I am almost to my 3rd trimester.
