Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Your blood pressure is of concern and you need to see a your doctor ASAP. High blood pressure is not good for growth of baby as it might lead to abortion, bleeding, Low birth weight babies etc. U need to consult a Obg Specialist and start on medications to lower your blood pressure to normal level for your pregnancy to continue normally..
Hope this helps.
take care..
