Gestational hypertension- did you get this again second pregnancy? Was it linked to oedema?

Am feeling a little worried today. Am starting to get oedema (swelling) in my hands and feet and they feel tingly. I know thats common in the third trimester (i'm 34 weeks today) but last time it also corresponded with my BP going up, it continued to be raised and my midwives advised against my planned homebirth.
I was really hoping I wouldn't get it again this time and have been feeling much healthier and more mobile up till the last few days.
Anyone else got this?
Experiences?
Thanks,
Selina
