How are you doing? Is the medication keeping your BP in check? I have been thinking of you and hope all is well!

Hello and welcome back! Congratulations on your pregnancy! It is very scary to go through a pregnancy again after having had PE. The good thing is that you know what can happen and you also know much better what your care needs are and can advocate for yourself in a very different way. I hope that the medication will keep your BP stable throughout pregnancy. The medications that have been prescribed are common during pregnancy. Please keep us posted on how you are doing throughout your pregnancy as you are able!
Glad to hear your little one is keeping you busy :D

Hello all,
old and new welcome.....

i thank you all for you support during my time on here last year and year before.......
Harmony have been keeping me busy so i hardly online so all my online profiles have been starving for attention

well surprise surprise i'm pregnant again au naturale outta nowhere totally unplanned.....even though i was monitoring myself to avoid another pregnancy....

i am begging God for mercy and to spare my life cause this one is another roller bp never really settled after Harmony so i entered this pregnancy with existing hypertension....

for now i am only on 1500 mg of methyldopa/aldomet........labetalol is not administered in my country of Trinidad and Tobago located in the caribbean. However, atenonol will be considered....I have entered 14 weeks now which i think is safe to begin the 81mg of aspirin...also calcium ..vitamin D and pregnancy vitamins and so forth...i have done electro and echocardiograms to see how my cardiovascular system is fearing.....

the results next week together with bloodwork.....

i am scared....

but i have God's grace, family, my little one and your people on here to help me through....

look forward for another update on this soon

thanks everyone

Congratulations! Welcome baby Harmony. I am so happy for the safe arrival of your baby girl. I hope your pressures will settle soon. Just remember that PE can strike/be an issue for about 6 weeks postpartum. I needed many adjustments (medications and dosages were switched very often) of my medications within the first 3 weeks after my daughter was born. So please keep an eye on your pressures and report back to your doctor. Can't wait to see pictures :-)
