BP Dropping 7 1/2 Weeks?

Has anyone had their BP drop as early as 7 1/2 weeks? I've been on Labetalol 100mg/ 2X day since about 2 months PP with my daughter. Sunday I could not stand for more than 10 minutes without getting dizzy. I took my BP (when I wasn't dizzy) and it was lower than it has been several times. It was mainly around 120/70 (has been high 130s-140s/ 80-90s). Once it was 102/87 which is a weird reading for me. I tried called the dr. Sunday night, but he never called me back, so I decided not to take my meds and see what happens. BP has still been in 120s/70s range with no meds, but I haven't gotten dizzy again. Is it possible for pregnancy to cause a drop this early? Last time my BP was still 140/90 at my 10 week booking appointment and dropped for the next at 14 weeks to 120/70.

In my second pregnancy, which we wound up with pre-e, I found it pretty ironic that one of the first weird symptoms I reported to my MFM was that I got so dizzy I had to drop to the floor for fear I was going to pass out- when my hubby took my blood pressure it was stupidly low. I had similar dizzy spells early on with this one as well. Not sure if it's normal or usual, but I certainly had dizzy spells early on.

Hopefully you'll get a call from your doctor soon, as you'll probably want to check in before completely stopping meds if that's the direction things go.

It's been 2 days and he still hasn't called. :( Feel we may have to change doctors again. We have an appointment on Friday though. I'll stay off the meds, but continue to monitor my BP. Tonight it was 130/80, so still okay without the meds.
