Hi! I'm 5 weeks pregnant and I've been wondering about something. High blood pressure runs in my dads side of the family but nothing traumatic. Mine runs a tad high when I go to the doctors for a cold. I try to tell them I'm nervous, I hear my heart pounding, and I feel panicked but they don't retake it. I started a low salt diet earlier this year and was getting readings at the pharmacy to see if I could control it per doctors request. Readings over couple months were 119/77, 139/79, 102/82, 141/78(this I did a retry after relaxing and it read 120/78. This was all early this year and I kinda slacked off my diet since. When I found out I was preg at doctors office my BP was 141/70. I went in for shortness of breath and learned I was pregnant. I was really freaked out thinking I was ill or something but EKG was normal. I am eating healthy now, only 22yr old, not overweight. Should I worry about this or not?
