In brief: Hypertension

Gestational hypertension occurs in the third trimester of pregnancy.
It is a blood pressure of 140/90 without any protein in the urine or any biochemical abnormalities seen with pre-eclampsia. The cure for gestational hypertension is delivery of the infant. Medical intervention is not always necessary and will depend upon the gestational age of the fetus.
