high blood pressure and abdomanal pain
I'm 11 weeks pregnant, and recently discovered that my blood pressure is 150 / 88. This morning I woke up with heartburn and a severe headache. I also have pain in my abdomen (that come and goes). I phoned my gynae and he said that the baby is growing and the headace is common in pregnancy. My appointment is only on Thursday and it seems so far. Is above something to worry about?

At this early stage of pregnancy, you would not have pre-eclampsia, so it is okay to wait till your visit.
