HI, does anyone have high blood pressure before the pregnancy? i have high blood pressure before pregnancy, and it's well control, now i am pregnant 14 weeks, and doctor told me that my blood pressure will tend to go down in the 1st and 2nd trimester, which is true on the first trimest, but now these days my pressure is going up, around 140/87, i want to know does anyone taking medicine and still have a healthy baby/.

Hi Jen, Im in the same boat as you cept mine hasnt gone back up quite yet. My dr took me off my meds when she saw my blood pressure lowered in the beginning. But they do have lots of different medications for high blood pressure that are safe for pregnancy. The one I was on I know is safe. Hope you find out what your looking for. Good luck!

Hi Ladies, I had high blood pressure prior to pg. At first I was taking Norvasc. Once I saw my dr. and confirmed I was pregnant they switched me to Aderol, which is safe for pregnancy. They have no plans to take me off the meds even though at my last appointment my bp was 110/56. I am glad I am on the meds, because it is one last thing I have to worry about. Thanks for creating this post because I am sure there are more of us out there.

Hi, im 17 weeks today. I was taking hydrochlorothiazide, the lower dose..i think 25mg. Let me know what the dr says. Try cutting out any extra salts and drink LOTS of water. That helps. Keep us posted! Take care

I had high blood pressure during both of my pregnancies (but not before). I was on Aldomet to control it. My babies are both healthy, although they were both born a little early because of my blood pressure.

Jen, I have high normal bp when not preg...my doc monitors it every 6 months, but during my first trimester it was lower (128/72)...last week I went and it was 140/84! I go again tomorrow for another bp check to see if it went down at all or not....I'm getting nervous about it b/c I had high bp with my first pregnancy and was on bedrest b/c of it...good luck to you
