Thanks for this thread...I am 14 weeks and had an appointment with my OB yesterday. He said I had high BP but didn't elaborate much on what it was or what it meant. now have to have bloods and urine tests and monitoring in the next couple of weeks. Besides the lack of information (just a brochure on PE ) I'm feeling really anxious about this. I have been so stressed the last few weeks with work, hubby and money worries that I am worried that this is contributing. I don't know how to stop being so stressed. Now with the worry of a high BP I feel like I'm starting to crumble. How concerned should I be and how can I stop the worry? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I wish he told me what my BP was so I could keep track. Does stress play a part in a high BP?
