Here are some facts first. I am 33 weeks pregnant. My doctor has told me that my blood pressure has been rising since my last few appointments. I cannot remember what it was at my last appointment but she said it was in the high part of normal and not to worry about it. I am currently taking Ambien 10 mg once a day, one omega 3, one prenatal vitamin, and one calcium.

For about the last 24 hours I have felt pulsating pressure on the right side of my temple. What worries me is my mother died at the age of 56 from an aneurysm/stroke. She also had a history of high blood pressure.

I plan to mention this to my doctor next Wednesday of course but should I be seeking medical help now instead of "waiting?"
