Re: Hypertention Or Preclampsia ?
My son is five months old and I had pre-clampsia when I was pregnant with him. He is my first child and I'd never had any high blood pressure before. At 34 weeks I showed signs of pre-clampisa bc my bp was 150/102, pretty bad. I also gained like 12 pnds in two weeks. I was in and out of the hospital (non-stress test, 24 hour urine test) and on stricted bedrest until 37weeks (was also told to stay stress free, hah!). Since my bp wasn't going down, I was induced at 37 weeks bc my midwife and high rish dr doesn't believe in the meds for bp. When my son was born, we found out the cord had been around his neck..which we had no sign of because he was moving like crazy and had a great heartbeat the whole time. He was born very healthy and to this day his one crazy little boy!
I'd ask your dr for other options. I mean, you did have high bp before but taking meds is just to help prolong having to induce or to wait for natural labor. I hope things get better. You bp doesn't seem to be to bad yet, but it can go from okay to bad in a split second, ecspecially if you are stessed. My advice (like everyone elses LOL) is to relax, take in the fluids also. I was water fen at the end of my pregnany, I was drinking nothing put water the whole day, I'd wake up in the middle of the night for a tall glass of ice water! Good luck!!
