Looks like we have come full circle

Postby susan belisle » Fri Jul 23, 2004 06:46 am

Well after weeks of tring to put me on pg safe meds for my cronic high bp we are right back were we started. Sort of. I am only on Labetalol right now and I am at 600 mm vs the 800 I was taking before we started. I take my bp 3 times a day. IT is lowest in the morning and the aternoon and evening are close to each other. The only thing is if I take my bp thre times in a row I get three different readings. Nothing alarming but each time it comes down by like 10 sometimes. Like 140/80, 130/79, 120/70. I guess I am still Labile so we are gonna watch it for a few more weeks and then we are off to ttc.

With all of this preperation to get me in the best possible health/shape to have a baby I feel and look better then ever. And soon I am gonna be fat and miserable? LOL. Well I hope I wont be miserable. But I feel like I am gonna run my body though a mill soon.

Thanks for letting me get this stuff off my chest.

Congratulations on ttc. I also take labetalol for my blood pressure. I took me some time to find the right dose that works best for me. I wish you all the luck in the world on this next pregnancy.[:D]

Best of luck, I know what you mean about running your body through a mill. I am really trying to get into shape for TTC in a month. Hope the Labetalol is working great and you get a ++++ really soon!!!

Good luck with everything. It sounds like you are under watchful eyes and getting great care, and that is wonderful! Also, that's great that you are looking and feeling so good, even if it is for just a short time... :)

Best of luck TTCing!
