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 and my blood pressure is still 90's/60's. I have never had blood pressure this low that I can recall, even during my pre-chronic hypertensive days! Could this be the second trimester dip? Is this blood pressure too low for baby? If it is too low then I do not know what could possibly be done since I am not on any meds. I did read somewhere that if the dip occurs it is a bit more exaggerated in us chronic gals. I have placed a call to my OB and am still waiting to hear back.
Does anyone have experience with this? If so how did you deal with the fatigue? I do not feel dizzy or anything, but upon standing I do feel EXTREMELY tired. Never thought I would be worried about pressures being too low without meds!
