I have just found this message board while searching for a braun BP monitor....wish I had found this 3 years ago.
Here is a brief intro. I am 31 mother of a 5 1/2 year old healthy daughter. Had a healthy pregancy with no elevated BP. 3 years ago was daignosed with High BP (wihtout meds it was 164/120) got on a beta blocker and did not do well. Then switched to Avapro and did well. I was taking a quater of a pill and finally weaned myself off a week ago. I am giving myself two months to test the waters without the meds because I want a second baby. I take my bp every day (ok sometimes I miss a day)...and so far so good (117/70 to 120/85 without meds so far).
I AM SCARED that it will flair up.
I excercise, watch my food, and I am healthy (other than the BP). I take supplements and vitamins....
I REALLY want to get pregnant and NOT have to get on any meds.
I would love to hear from any of you who have had experience with this problem....
ANY info would be greatly appreciated....
