  • I did, but not for my heart. I had an irritable uterus, meaning it liked to contract more than it should and I was at risk for preterm labor. I don't remember what the dosage was, but I was put on Nifedipine until I hit 37 weeks.

    If it's something you usually take, talk to your doctor about finding a safe dose to take during pregnancy. Good luck!

  • I've taken it for the last 2 pregnancies If your heart "feels like it's going to explode" GO TO THE DR!!! That can be severe side effect. It could be you're taking too much or need to take a different one. If it's for blood pressure ask to see a cardiologist.
