High blood pressure. 39 weeks pregnant. Help questions

I just checked my blood pressure and its 132/78 which is way higher than my usual 110/68. When I went into preterm labor 5 weeks ago it was at 138 and they said that was because my contractions were so strong. My other symptoms are loss of my mucus plug yesterday, crazy pressure on my cervix and rectum, and I'm having an obscene amount of mucus constantly coming out of me all the time. It's so much that no one ha probably ever seen so much. I'm also cramping. (Last week I was 4 cm and 70% effaced) any adivce??

Make sure you drink a lot of water, stay away from caffeine and salt, take it easy, put your feet up. Do you have a headache or any swelling in your ankles or lower legs? Are you seeing spots? Any change in the amount of urine you are producing?

Call your doctor, or go to the hospital?

Go to Labor and delivery NOW. Those are all signs of pre-e. Seeing spots is fairly advanced.
