Re: Driving with high blood pressure?

Thanks for your advice. My first instinct was that I probably had better not drive and thankfully I was able to arrange for someone to take me to my doctor appointment so that my husband didn't have to miss work again. I have been on bedrest since 32 weeks and I am now 35 1/2 weeks. This is my second pregnancy. My first pregnancy I was found to have high blood pressure, a rash over my whole body, and protein in urine at 35 weeks. I was put on bedrest for 1 week and then induced at 36 weeks. This pregnancy I was being watched more closely. My BP was elevated at 32 weeks, but so far no protein in urine, no swelling, no abnormal lab values, and baby measures well. I am now on Labetalol to try to control the BP and it seems to be working as long as I am lying down. Praying that I can make it another couple of weeks! Thanks for your input!!
