I am currently 8 weeks and 3 days and my ob has recommended I start LDA once a day. I do not have a clotting disorder but I do have chronic HBP. During my last pregnancy I did not take LDA (was never told to) but after reading up on the possible benefits I have decided to take her recommendation.
My question is which type/brand should I take? I read that uncoated is best but the only uncoated I found were the chewables and they all have dyes and other undesirables in them. All other LDA is coated. For those of you who are or have been on LDA which type/brand do you take? I have read many success stories on this forum from women that were on LDA and I am curious if they took coated or uncoated (chewables).
3 wonderful sons ages 13, 10, and 6.
Son #1 and son #2 both born at 40 weeks, both weighed above 8 lbs and both pregnancies were completely problem free.
Suddenly developed chronic hypertension immediately AFTER second son was delivered ( Blood pressure was fine during entire pregnancy, but went up right after delivery. So strange!) and have been on BP meds ever since. I was 24 yrs old at the time.
Son #3 born in 2007 at 37 weeks, 5 lbs 8 oz. Methyldopa started in second trimester.
Baby #4 due Feb. 10 2014. Praying for a healthy pregnancy!
