I've made it to 36 weeks in my first pregnancy, with so far only HBP working against me (never had HBP until the pregnancy). I've been receiving good care (weekly ultrasounds, NST's, frequent blood draws), and been monitoring my BP at home. Since 29 weeks when my BP hit 180/90, I've been taking labetalol in increasing doses to try and steady things out. The past 5 days though my BP seems to be sneaking back up to 150/85. Sometimes though at home I'm getting readings of 125/75. I'm just wondering why there is so much fluctuation, and what other peoples' experiences have been with this or other BP meds. I'm wondering whether I should be worried about labor with readings like 150/85. I guess I'm also worried about p.e. complications popping up suddenly. Thanks for any input!
