35 weeks pregnant. Last night I started to get a headache. , not really a big deal. I took tylenol and it didnt go away. I woke up this morning with the same headache but its worse than last night. I took more tylenol. This was over an hour ago and my head still hurts just as bad. About half an hour ago I got a dizzy spell and felt like I was gonna pass out. I checked my blood pressure and it was 142/85. What is considered high blood pressure for a pregnant woman? Should I worry?Answer Question

It's not bad. I think it's elevated since you may be panicking a little because you have a headache. Drink a lot of water since the headache is most likely because you are slightly dehydrated. Lay down & rest. Do you have a history of high blood pressure during this pregnancy because it usually is consistant throughout the pregnancy and does not suddenly come on. Eliminate salt from your diet as well. If you had a blood pressure issue at your OBGYNs visits they would have put you on meds by now. Speak to them if you can't get rid of the headaches & have them check your BP in the office.
