Due Nov. 24, 08, Blood Pressure issues....

Hi all mommies,

Just wanted to say hi to everyone! My husband & I found out we're expecting baby # 2 Nov. 24th! I had a great pregnancy w/ 1st child, but had a hard vaginal labor, & got high BP after the birth along w/ a few other problems. I have been on BP medicine ever since having my daughter in `02. I was recently switched from Toprol XL to Labetolol 100 mg 2 x a day by my new OB. Any other moms here have high BP going into this pregnancy? If so, what meds are u taking? Or have any other moms taken Labetolol during a previous pregnancy? If so, how'd it go? Thanks!

I did have high BPin last month of my pregnancy and deliver my daughter 2 weeks early.
I had BP of 165/90 just 2 days after delivery and my Dr did not give meds. I got monitored for a month and it went away about in 2 months time.
I am not sure if I will have this time as well.
Good luck with your pregnancy.
My father does Yoga and I did do some yoga breathing.
