High blood pressure is something that can be very dangerous to a woman when she is pregnant. This can easily cause a woman to develop preeclampsia, which is something that has many risks. When a woman has high blood pressure, especially if she also has preeclampsia, knowing when to call the doctor is important.

When blood pressure is high and you are pregnant, it is always best to consult with your doctor. If it is after hours, there is likely to be a number that your doctor provided you that you can call. This is also something that you should discuss with your doctor at one of your appointments.

If you develop blurred vision or other vision problems, you should seek immediate medical attention. Frequent headaches may also be a sign that you need to go to the hospital.

Weight gain of more than 2 pounds over 24 hours should also be addressed immediately.

The best thing that you can do is know when your doctor expects you to call them. This is something that you should discuss in length during some of your first few doctor’s visits after becoming pregnant.
