I m 10 weeks pg. & from last 2 weeks my BP marked as 140/90 to 140/100. & as per my Dr. it is not a good sign. She advised me NICARDIA & Asprin delayed release tablts per day. I just want to know is it OK?

I'm not sure if you're asking if the meds are ok to take, or if your BP is ok, but you really need to take the meds your doctor has prescribed for you. High blood pressure -- especially the bottom number hitting 100 -- can be part of a dangerous condition known by a few names (Preeclampsia, toxemia, or pregnancy-induced hypertension). I developed pre-eclampsia at 36 weeks, was immediately hospitalized (because I had high blood pressure, severe swelling, and protein in my urine -- all signs of kidney problems), and was induced at 37 weeks after many tests to determine she was ready to be born. If you develop any unusual swelling or unusual headaches, contact your doctor immediately. Many women have just high BP that needs to be monitored without developing pre-eclampsia, but some do not. Keep a very close eye on it.

I agree with mailca...especially as normally your bps tend to go down in the first trimester
