Trying to Conceive (TTC) board


:) Hi everyone

My husband and I would like to TTC but I am very anxious about it. I am 28 years old and feel it is a good time for my husband and I to TTC. However, I have white coat hypertension and my blood pressure can go as high as 150/100 in the doctor's office. I am currently on 5mg of Vasotec twice a day. I always have normal BP readings at home, usually always between 120-130/70-80, it was always normal at home even before taking medication for it as well.

My question is, has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did your pregnancy go? I am really anxious about trying to have kids because of this. I am currently seeing a new GP and I do realize that I would need to switch BP medication before getting pregnant because ACE inhibitors like Vasotec can cause death to the fetus. Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated!
