? about high blood pressure



Recommended Posts

I am not pregnant yet...in fact I am going next week to get my IUD out. In my first pregnancy I had high blood pressure during my whole pregnancy. It gave me a lot of trouble and a lot of doctor appts. I have lost 50 lbs and I hope to loose at least another ten before I get pregnant.

So my question is do you think I will have trouble with high blood pressure again?

I also had the same problem with my first pregnancy but I gained a lot of weight and with every lb gained my blood pressure went up. At around 6 months I was put on meds and I have been on high blood pressure meds since she was born 5.5 years ago. After I lost weight with the lap band my dose was decreased by 1/2. Once I got pregnant my OBGYN took me off of them completely b/c they werent safe drugs. So far my blood pressure has been ok but I think it will go up again with pregnancy weight gain. I have a drs appt today so I will know if it is high or ok.

My guess is that I will get high blood pressure again while pregnant and be put on Meds again.
