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!

After 15 long years, our miracle is now here...
