My third trimester is when my blood pressure went haywire. I was starter on one med and upped in dosage until maxed. Then they added a second med. I ended up being hospitalized. I was eventually flown as an emergency to another hospital when my blood pressure spiked to it's worst and would not come down. They feared I would have a stroke or seizure. I was hooked up to a catheter and magnesium sulfate iv. That was the only thing that could bring my blood pressure down by the end of it. I ended up having severe pre eclampsia and help syndrome and delivering my baby at 32 weeks. Take the meds. It could save your life. Theres pregnancy safe meds. Good luck!
