I posted a few weeks back about already dealing with high blood pressure at 11 weeks. Well I am now 14 weeks and have already had to have my dose of labetalol doubled
At my last appointment the MFM advised me that he would say my risk of Pre-E is now at at least 50%. My BP are ok in the morning around 140/85 but in the evening tend to run really high about 175/100. I am dealing with a lot of headaches with the spikes in BP. I can always tell when it goes higher just based on my head as soon as I take my meds the headache goes away. I am just wondering if other people struggled with high BP before 20 weeks? And how they faired for the rest of their pregnancy. I know it is not Pre-E yet all my labs are looking fine. I am feeling like this is most likely going to be my last pregnancy! I wanted 4 kids but I am thinking adoption sounds better and better
Between a ton of bleeding and passing very large clots from 5 weeks-12 weeks (SCH), the all day long morning sickness (that I still have) and now already having BP issues I decided my body just really really does not like being pregnant. Anyways I guess I just need to vent about all the frustrations to woman who understand! Why is pregnancy so easy for some woman and so hard for all of us?! The most depressing part is right before getting pregnant my BP was the best it has ever been in the 117/77 range so i had high hopes it would stay ok.
