A 33-year-old G1P0 presents with positive home pregnancy test

A 33-year-old G1P0 presents to your office for the first time, stating that her period is late and that she had a positive home pregnancy test. You confirm the pregnancy in the office, and the patient is nervous but happy about the pregnancy. You measure her blood pressure as 140/100, with other vital signs normal. The urinanalysis reveals no protein. Last menstrual period (LMP) and ultrasound date the pregnancy at 13 weeks, with a single intrauterine fetus seen. Follow-up blood pressure in a week is 142/96.
