Pregnant with frequent urination and headache. Elevated blood pressure and temperature. Is this normal during pregnancy?

I am currently 39 weeks pregnant. Last night I woke up 8 separate times to use the rest room and also obtained a mild headache . I have taken tyenol to help but it seems to still be there. I am tired yet can t sleep. My temperature is 99.1 degrees. I have had elevated blood pressure all pregnancy recently it was 124/83 but have never had protein in my urine or any other signs of pre e. No vision changes and fetal movement has been fine. I did have some upper abdominal tenderness but the nurse chalked that up to the position of the baby. And since it has subsided. If the headache does not go away I will be phoning my doctors office as soon as they open tomorrow. Do you feel this is just normal pregnancy symptoms or something more serious? I have been to the ER a few times for minor things and don t want to have to head there again (can t afford it!).

39 weeks pregnancy with headache can be due to pre eclaptic toxaemia in which BP rises along with swelling of feet and there can be albuminuria also

By now you must have delivered and this type of headache usually subsides after delivery

It can be due to fever for which paracetamol is given
