I just found out my niece, who is 24 weeks pregnant, has high blood pressure.  Does high blood pressure cause complications during pregnancy?  I have always had low blood pressure and actually went even lower a few times during my pregnancies.

High blood pressure can cause issues sometimes.  They'll monitor your niece to make sure it doesn't go too high or she doesn't exhibit any signs of pre-eclampsia.

My midwife told me that it is common for blood pressure to creep up at the end of pregnancy. But 24 weeks sounds pretty early for her blood pressure to be getting high. Yes, it can cause problems. Hopefully her doctor will be able to keep her blood pressure under control.

It does sound a tad early. I keep an eye on mine when I am pregnant and when I am not, it runs in the family too much to try and ignore it. Has she gotten it checked out yet?

Mine ran high for my first pregnancy and that ended with an emergency C-section for pre-eclampsia. Mine did not start going up until about 32 weeks though. They may want her to come in a little more frequently for check-ups.

Hi there. The most common complication that usually appears in a woman with a hypertension is pre-eclampsia. It's a sudden increase of blood pressure along the pregnancy weeks. This complication can be life-threatening so it's better for your niece to have a proper treatment and management so she and her baby will be fine all throughout.

Yes high blood pressure is pretty common during pregnancy, but it is better to reduce the same or try to stable the pressure through some yoga or medicine. Else it can lead to premature birth of the baby or some kind of deformity.So one needs to calm down for the benefit of self & the baby.

This is exactly what happened to me. My blood pressure was fine until 32 weeks, but then it rose so high I wound up having an emergency C-section at 32 and 3.
