New LDA recommendations

Hi everyone, I am expecting baby #5 and am in my 11th week. My last pregnancy I took LDA from week 8 or 9 to week 18 with really good outcomes.

Chronic gals, is this the 2nd trimester dip?

Just wondering if anyone else has had experience with this.... I am 21 weeks and about 5 weeks ago I was taken off HBP med (12.5mg atenolol before appts) due to blood pressures dipping in the 90's/60's daily. My pre-pregnancy normal is 120/80 with med. I have been off all HBP meds for a a month now ...

What!? Atenolol only before appts for anxiety?

Hi everyone, Would popping a 25 mg. atenolol, say an hour before an anxiety provoking event like a drs. visit cause the pressures to normalize while there? I have only taken meds for bp before that work to stabilize pressures after a day or two. Does Atenolol work this quickly? Has anyone ever had s...

Re: Confused about which Low Dose Aspirin to take

Thank you for your response. My Ob did not mention a particular brand/type. I see her again next week and will ask her then. Since I did not receive any responses on the forum I went ahead and bought the orange chewables from Bayer. I am having pretty severe morning sickness so chewing instead of sw...

Confused about which Low Dose Aspirin to take

Hi everyone, I am currently 8 weeks and 3 days and my ob has recommended I start LDA once a day. I do not have a clotting disorder but I do have chronic HBP. During my last pregnancy I did not take LDA (was never told to) but after reading up on the possible benefits I have decided to take her recom...

Need help in Fort Worth

Hi everyone, I have had chronic hypertension for ten years. It developed shortly after I delivered my second son (I was 24 yrs. old) and never went away.
