See doctor: For the sake of your and your baby's health, you should be under the care of a doctor who will examine you, test your urine, blood pressure, hemoglobin etc to safeguard your health. If you are starting out pregnancy with hypertension, you are at greater risk of pre-eclampsia. Wish you good health and a healthy baby!
