High blood pressure

Does anyone seem to have developed high bp in pregnancy. I always had very low bp prior to pregnancy and even in last pregnancy. However from 21 weeks its been steadily rising and at 30 weeks appt was 160/86 1st attempt and then with a bigger cuff was 140/80.
I dont have any other symptoms except my ankles swell occasionally but only at end of the day.
I am under stress at the moment but bp was high before then
