Though I'm not pregnant, I'm having very similar problems as you with high blood pressure and increased heart rate. I'm sorry I don't really have any answers for you, but I can totally relate to how scary it is. I have a history of anxiety and panic attacks, but I've never had high bp before. I think that anxiety is definitely contributing to mine and perhaps also hormonal changes (I'm in perimenopause and my bp went down as soon as my period started). Also, my heart rate always goes down after I exercise and do some yoga and deep-breathing. As far as the tranquilizer you took -- I asked the doctor whether if I took a xanax and my blood pressure improved, if that would mean it was definitely anxiety. She said no, because they tend to slow your heart rate and relax your blood vessels. Instead she gave me a prescription for a diuretic (I would have preferred a prescription for xanax!).

I wish I could be of more help.... :)
