We tried to fight it as long as we could, but I had to go in last Thursday b/c I could tell my bp was getting ridiculously high by the way I felt. Wed after work I went to a Walgreens to check it b/c I had been lightheaded all day and my head was pounding and it was 137/96. The next day I called the dr office and they asked me to come in that afternoon. I waited an hour before they saw me and I could tell it was going down just from sitting and resting and it was 157/74 when they checked it. I'm now on labetalol twice a day and have to monitor my bp to make sure it stays under 145/95.

I also asked about my constant cramping and told the dr I figured it was my fibroid and he agreed that it was probably my fibroid and told me due to hormones it may grow and will cause a lot of pain.

Oh. Joy. Sorry about the fibroid and cramping. That's got to be tough in addition to everything else!

So glad you were able to get on meds to help keep the bp under control, and I hope it behaves for the rest of the pregnancy!

Aww, boo mama. I am glad you got it addressed though. Better to take care of it now than wind up in the er later. Sorry about your fibroid. That sounds painful

I'm sorry I hated being on Labetalol so much that when the doctor tried to put me on it back at 8 weeks I refused and started following the HELP diet ASAP and brought it back to normal. To have a fibroid on top of that ouch!

I'm sorry! I'm bummed too because I was high risk with my others and this is the earliest I've had to be put in "high" risk category. I'm on labetolol too as of 19 weeks. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy, take it easy.

Why do you hate labetalol? I started it Friday and haven't noticed anything. Just wondering if I should be watching for something. I'm one of those people where things go over my head LOL

I hope you are starting to feel better. My BP issues definitely increased towards the end of pregnancy with my son. Did you have to deliver early with your others??

I've been on Labetalol for over a year and have not had a problem with it all. I started the meds while we were TTC. Hang in there!!

I was induced at 38 weeks with both my boys so that is pretty standard for me.
