Measure BP carefully and correctly regularly as pregnancy. The only way to dx it is to measure the BP correctly. 2. To see if it is damaging you kidneys your team will check your urine protein. Very simple. So just get into a regular care system and follow the guidelines.

In brief: Serial BP's
The primary testing is measuring blod pressures multiple times at different times of the day and on multiple days.
No one BP reading can establish the diagnosis. And, of course, the measurements met be abnormal during a pregnancy or shortly after delivery.
