I have a doctors appt on wednesday but i have some concers my bp has been high on an off the past couple months i went in for a 24 hours urine about 2 weeks ago cause my bp was 170 but the urine came back fine.

But yesterday i woke up with really swollen feet which ive never had 37 almost 38 weeks and my legs feel swollen like a ball in my calf sometimes and my face looks fatter also ive gained 10 pounds in 4 days is that normal my bp was 143 yesterday ? I dont know if i should call my doctor right now an see if he wants me to come in now or if im just being paranoid.

Call your doctor now....even though your urine came back fine your pressure has been high and you are at the beginning stages of pre-e and it can turn to eclampsia fast. They might monitor you or induce because that is a health risk to you and the baby. The baby if delivered now should be fine.

I would call your doctor. At almost 38 weeks, your baby will be more than fine if they have to induce or have an emergency C if there is any sign of distress to you or the baby. You MUST think of yourself, for without YOU, there is no baby. Go call. Good luck!!!
