I got a call from my doctor's nurse and apparently my bp has been good enough that I have been released back to work. I'm actually quite happy about that. Hopefully the numbers stay in check.

I'm sorry my dear. Ive been hypertensive for more than a decade. It is the toughest thing.
You need to rest, rest, and rest some more. Get well soon.

Hi krissie. I had pid with my dd. It's stressful. Mine started at 7 months so I had to do urine tests and weekly blood tests to check for pre e. I was placed on bed rest at 35 weeks and induced at 37+1. From 32 weeks most my appointents were followed by fetal non stress tests. I was on BP meds from 36 weeks through when dd was 8 weeks old. She is my first so I don't know what that will look like if I'm lucky enough to have a second it's really hard to hear it. That only a couple pressures were bad is good in that maybe it won't get to induction but being induced wasn't bad. I knewill when to expect baby and had time to prepare myself. I had some additional complications with her but I honestly feel if I wasn't getting consistent care due to the pressure the other issue could have been so much worse.

Thanks babybum. It sounds like you had a similar treatment plan to mine. I'm not currently on amy meds though because my numbers have such a huge range.

From what my docs said mine weren't high enough to put me on meds till later but I would prepare yourself. I also had to buy an at home blood pressure reader. I got a wrist cuff for pretty cheap at CVS and I would imagine they are also available on amazon. I had to monitor my pressures at home until it was induction time and it took 2 nurses going through every med twice to try and control it. But like I said the extra monitoring came in handy for my additional issues. Good luck

I am already on a small dose of Labatalol. So far my BP has ran low at every appt but it did that last pregnancy with no medicine until it shot up at 36 weeks.


Congrats on getting to go back to work!! FX it all remains low, woo!

Thanks for the info ladies. My bp did spike the last 2-3 weeks of my first pregnancy. It seems around 36 weeks is a rough time.

I was put on bp meds two weeks ago at 34 weeks since by bp has continued to climb with numbers in the 160s/80-90s.

I'm 36 weeks today and just miserable. My bp isn't awful high (140s/90s) but I am definitely struggling with bad headaches and chest pain.

My doctor has me scheduled to be induced at 37+2 so I am looking forward to that end. I have 9 days to go.
