Bad cold/raise in BP

I am 24 weeks today.  I had preexisting high blood pressure before getting pregnant.  I am on a medicine that has controlled my bp very well.  It is usually around 117/75 or so.  I noticed the last few days that my bp is going up.  It is now in the mid 130's/85.  I do have a terrible cold and a nasty cough.  I have not taken any cold medication to explain the rise in BP.   Should I be worried at this point?  I tried to call the doc and it said they were closed.  I will try back in a bit.  I figured they are at lunch.  I am sure being nervous about this is not helping the BP!
