Does high blood pressure or hypertension coincide with Gd? Last couple of times my blood pressure was taken it was high. Does this mean I might get pre-e also?

I'm having so much anxiety over this which I am sure is not good for the blood pressure either

If your blood pressure is high, your risk of getting pre-e is slightly higher than normal (seems normal is around 10% of women with GD) - but that doesn't mean you will get it. The odds are you won't get it.

My dr told me that yest you have a greater chance of having pre-e cuz of the GD. With my daughter that happend to me. I was fine and all of a sudden I had a high b/p. They had me go over to the hospital for monitoring. Well my plately count had dropped and I developed HELLP syndrome which can sometimes happen cuz of the pre-e. So Alli was born at 35 weeks 6 days. She weighed 6 lbs. She only had to spend about 5 days in the nicu for observations cuz she wasn't an agressive eater. She never need oxgen or a feeding tube or anything. She did great. I don't want to scare you but if your numbers are rising make sure you discuss your concerns with your dr.

Having GD will also caused hypertension too. So anyone experiencing this should be careful enough.
