    Hi Kelly
    Your BP is a little high but you also need to consider what your BP was before you were pregnant. The protein in your urine is also another concern depending on how much protein there was. I would expect that your Midwife/ob is keeping a close eye on you at the moment.
    If you get any of the following you should get it checked out
    spots, zig zags in front of your eyes.
    Belly pain (just under your ribs).
    Headache
    Itching skin.

    It is borderline high, but make sure you're getting checked up on a regular basis (ie weekly or more often).

    Also add to Alan's list.. fluid retention (especially around the face/eyes) and irregular urination.
