Re : Chronic Hypertension and BP Meds -- Update

<t>Natalie,<br/> <br/> You're welcome. Also like you, I'm still on atenolol in my non-pregnant state, and it still works well for me. <br/> <br/> All of our cases and scenarios are different. In my case, my perinatologist was proactive, and our perinatologist's choice was atenolol. My family and I a...

Re : Chronic Hypertension and BP Meds -- Update

<t>Hi Natalie,<br/> <br/> I'm also a chronic hypertensive, and was on atenolol during my pregnancy. A perinatologist put me on atenolol and monitored me for about two months before I conceived to make sure that I was as ready as I could be for pregnancy. In my case, there were no ill effects (twins ...

Re : PCOS? Or Feritilty Treatment before PE?

<t>Hi Autumn,<br/> <br/> In your shoes, I would consult with a reproductive endocrinologist/fertility specialist and a perinatologist--most ideal scenario, two who work closely with each other. If you're worried about medications and preeclampsia, they can best answer your questions and hopefully cr...

Re : Chronic hypertension in first pregnancy

<t>Also have the chronic hypertension. Only did two 24-hour urines: a baseline preconception, and then another around five, maybe six months (sorry, I don't remember exactly when during the pregnancy). <br/> <br/> Glad to hear that they are keeping a close eye on you. Agreeing with the others, havin...

Re : Anyone know about a bicornuate uterus??

<t>Also have a good friend with a bicorunate uterus. She was closely monitored while TTC and during her pregnancy, and the bicorunate uterus wasn't a problem or a big deal to her docs (she went full-term and she and baby are healthy).<br/> <br/> I'm hoping that it isn't an issue for you, and that th...

Re : birth control pills and high blood pressure

<t>Hi Dara,<br/> <br/> Along with everyone else, I do agree that this is something to ask your doctor. Doing a FET, in my opinion your best bet would be to have an RE and a perinatologist consulting with you and each other on your care. Hopefully your RE can create a patient specific protocol for yo...

Re : new with questions!

<t>Hi Laura,<br/> <br/> So sorry to hear about your miscarriage. <br/> <br/> Like Julie, I was also on atenolol throughout my pregnancy.

Re : TTC with High BP

<t>Hi Summer,<br/> <br/> Fortunately, I didn't have any blood pressure problems throughout the whole pregnancy (~ 115/75 throughout), until four hours before the twins were born. (I was already in active labor and put on Magnesium Sulfate; pressures went down and all turned out well.)<br/> <br/> It'...

Re : TTC with High BP

<t>Hi Korie,<br/> <br/> I had high blood pressure (dx with chronic hypertension) while trying to conceive, and did not develop preeclampsia while pregnant. All of this my husband and I attribute to answered prayers, and in our eyes the world's best perinatologist whose orders we followed to a "T" an...
