4 doctors agree

In brief: OB hypertension

Hypertension in pregnancy can lead "pre-eclampsia" as it is one of the components which also include a syndrome of elevated blood platelets, pedal edema, and decreased kidney filtration etc.
You will need to be examined more frequently by your OB md during this pregnancy.
