just a follow on from the other BP post, i had posted my BP was 120/80 (almost week 13) up from 110/70 at week 5. Had a look on the net and it seems BP shouldnt rise until the 3rd trimester, and that it normally falls during the 2nd trimester? Now I am worried, though I suppose we will know at my next check up how my BP is doing.

120/80 is normal blood pressure, so there's no need to worry. While it is up a bit on your last reading, bear in mind that one reading isn't necessarily accurate and, if you were a bit more stressed or hadn't been resting as long before your BP was taken, it will be up a bit.
