I'm new to the boards and was wondering if there are any women out there who had high blood pressure going into pregnancy and who had/are having a successful pregnancy.
What are some of the symptoms or issues you have/had and how did you handle it? I'm hypertensive and in my 12th week. Everything is fine so far and the labetalol my doctor prescribed is working well. I'm just a little nervous about the distance I have yet to go and hoping that I can do as much as possible to avoid preeclampsia. Any suggestions and tips from those of you who have been through this before or are going through it now?View Thread
