sometimes in late pregnancy some women get gestational high BP, also normal BP readings differ from gynaec to gynaec. some consider 120/80 as normal some consider 140/90 as normal. My doc had advised to monitor BP through a physician twice a day and had advised​ that if the below denominator crosses 90 i should start tablets, which i did for last 3 weeks before delivery. so if doc thinks to start tabs i wld suggest do start. also 100 mg is a low dose so don't worry, if you think the high BP was one off incident u can have a physician monitor Ur BP twice a day and discuss the reading with your gyanec. all the best

150/100 and accompanied with swelling in the hands and face would be an indication to start the medication. You should get the test done as well as continue monitoring your BP twice a day at a local physician. Reduce salt intake and also increase your potassium intake. This can include banana and coconut water.
