I have been treated for hypertension since the age of 10. When I was pregnant they switched my bp meds to a pregnancy friendly one, did a baseline 24 hour urine early in the pregnancy and just kept an eye on my bp. I was being seen evey 2 weeks at the OB for other complications. I was also keeping an eye on my bp myself. I ended up with pre-e at the end of both pregnancies. My daughter was delivered at 37 weeks and my son at 39w1d. They adjusted my bp med dosage a few times during the pregnancies, but that was about it. I hope you have an uneventful pregnancy!
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with hypertension. I hope you have a healthy, uneventful pregnancy. Feel free to hang out with us too. We always like company.
Mom to M (6), K (4), and little rose (18 months)
thanks everyone.. i didnt have the bp problems with my first pregnancy so this is all new.. they did change my bp meds to a pregnancy friendly one i take 400mg right now.., just nervous that i will deliver to early, trying to exercise and eat healthy hoping that helps..
I did. Early pg I had to half my dose cause I was low. Mid pg I was so low I was fainting and having other complications because of it. Now I'm not on any bp meds and it is better than it ever was! It doesn't make sense to my drs either but I'll take whatever I can.
They made sure I was on pg friendly meds and I have ultrasounds more frequently and go on weekly appts sooner.
Hey feel on that I have hypertension since I was 23 years old since my first pregnancy the put through 24 hr urine and blood sugar test the blood sugar come out normal but my bp was preclampsia all through my pregnancies from my first to my very last who I am carrying now and the dr. is keeping a close eye on me since I'm 38 years old I just 19 weeks and 1 day today. Than they got me a bp monitor for and a visiting nurse that comes in to check my bp and the baby heart beat so much going on. I know how you feel.
I was just about to post this same question. I've had hypertension for the last 7 years. I eat healthy and try to excercise regularly. I just switched to labetalol but my bp, which was low last week on my old meds, was high today. So I am going to the doctor in the morning. Hopefully this will be a successful pregnancy. I've never had to deal with this during pregnancy before.
