Concerned About High Blood Pressure

Wendi - December 29

I am 30 weeks pregnant. I have been having slightly high blood pressure over the past two weeks with no other real symptoms other than headaches. My doctor has just been trying to watch me. Today I had a headache and luckily I work at a hospital and one of the nurses took my blood pressure and it was 140/100. This is the highest it has ever been, also very high for me. I am normally like 112/65. I called the doctor and they asked me to come in. I had it checked again like 40 minutes later and it was still 130/95. When I went to the doctor, it was only 125/85. The 85 is still kind of high but not dangerously high so the doctor did not even bother to see me or listen to the baby's heartbeat. I am so mad. I feel like they asked me to come in and then blew me off. I wish she would have at least taken 5 minutes to put the doppler on my belly and listen to the heartbeat. Now I feel like I should not even bother calling there if I have anymore problems. Would anyone else be concerned?
