  • I had hbp before and still did in the beginning of my preg I am not 15 or 16 weeks, taking labetalol for the blood pressure and now have better than perfect numbers :) do not worry lovely, just have the doc tell you what he or she suggests you do abotu the blood pressure and know you are certainly NOT the first or will you be the last person the doc is dealing with/dealt with who has high blood pressure. Though annoying it is more common then some people care to discuss....be well, eat well and drink lots of water and pamper yourself just a little!!
