I am not talking about pre-eclampsia (pregnancy induced high b/p). But did/do an bees have high blood pressure (either on or not on meds) prior to pregnancy? What changes did you have to make? Did you have to start meds?

I had prexisting high bp. When I first learned I was pregnant, my doctor changed my pills to something more pregnancy friendly. I was treated as high riskduring my pregnancy which just meant more drs appts and extra sonograms/testing. It felt good to have so many eyes on my baby though. I was actually taken off of meds in the beginning of my 3rd trimester since my numbers were on the lower side. My bp creeped up from there on out and I was induced at 39 weeks since they don’t typically let those with preexsisting blood pressure go all the way to theirdiuretic dates ( but can be convinced if your readings are great!). I’m back on (new) meds postpartum. Good luck and don’t worry too much, it’s prettycommon and drs will keep a close eye on you!
