Just got put on BP Meds

I had pre-e and IUGR with my first. I'm 10 weeks pregnant with my second. My BP has been up and my OB put me on BP meds - Labetalol. It is making me feel sort of strange, though. Other people I know on BP meds say this is typical. Will this go away after I am on them a little while?

Re: Advice Needed?

Thanks! I saw the new OB. She was great! So glad I switched. She put me on BP meds. I think the name of it is Labetalol. It is making me feel sort of weird, though.

Re: Advice Needed?

Yeah, low blood sugar can cause high bp . Especially high diastolic bp. And that is usually my problem. It seems like my bp goes through the roof after I work out...which would also likely be when my blood sugar was at its lowest. I am pretty sure I have issues with low blood sugar, though.

Advice Needed?

I had severe pre-e and IUGR with my son. He was born in September 2012. I am now 10 weeks pregnant. On Friday, I started getting a really bad headache. Felt very much like the headaches I had when I had pre-e. I took my blood pressure. It was 158/86. (Prior to this, it had been normal.) I called the...

CoQ10

I was originally taking 300 mg a day of the Ubiquinol form of CoQ10 while I was trying to get pregnant. It was prescribed by my Reproductive Endocrinologist (an OB with additional training in fertility) while I was trying to get pregnant. After I got pregnant, the nurse (when I called to check on BA...

Question ofr Moms of 2+

For those of you on here who have had 2 or more pregnancies, did you have pre-e with the 2nd, 3rd, etc? If you did have it again, was it more severe, less severe or about the same? How much time was between your pregnancies?

Thanks for the suggestions and input. I really appreciate it! I am already on vitamin D through my RE (reproductive endocrinologist).

Re: Underlying disorders

Yes, I will be seeing an MFM. However, when I had pre-e, etc. with number 1, they did not test for ANY underlying disorders. I find that I usually have to bring my doctors a specific list of tests in order for them to do them. The only reason they even knew I had pre-e was because I collected my own...

Underlying disorders

What underlying disorders typically cause Pre-e? What tests should a doctor order? I had pre-e plus my son had IUGR with number 1. I'm pregnant with number 2. As far as I know, I was never tested for underlying disorders with number 1, but I've read that a number of underlying disorders like certain...
