My dear Mada -

Sory I have been quiet here on the board. Everyone has been so darn sick here at our house! This winter has sure been hard!

I had posted under a post Suzanne started - If you didn't know they had put me on Aldomet and it made me feel really nasty. They took me off of it Thursday and wrote me a script for Labatelol (which is what I took at the end with my preg with Sam). As of today I have not started the Labatelol. Why? Well it made me feel like bunk when I took it before. I am tired of feeling nasty and not being able to take care of things here at the house. I am finally starting to feel better in terms of the morning sickness THANKFULLY! I am monitoring my bps and watching for all the tell tale signs. I am sure you will all read me the riot act about not starting the Labetalol... and you all can [:)] I have a follow up appointment this coming Thursday for a bp check. I will let you know how it goes!

I will be 16 weeks soon. A anniversary date for Chloe. It is easier this time then it was with Sam. One day at a time....

Thank you so much for thinking of me! You make my life so much brighter because you care. I hope you and your family are well.
Hugs,
Suzanna

Hi Suzanne! I am sorry to hear that you are having some problems with your blood pressure meds! I am really sensitive to mine! One thing that I did find that helped with the labetalol was to take 1/2 the pill then take the other half about 1/2 later. If I would take it all at once I would feel dizzy, light headed and just feel like crap in general! I would literally have to lay down and let that feeling go away, sometimes, it would not go away until my next med time. THerefore; it would not go away!

Since doing it that way, I have let my body adjust to such a change! Now I am able to finially take the full 200 mg at a time and not get sick. I feel good now!

I hope this helps!

Well hang in there sweetie....Let us know how the doc goes!! Also, I am sure it's tough as you go through this week and anniversary for Chloe....I bet it was really tough with Sam!
