  • Yep, just got put on a low dose of Methyldopa for blood pressure. This is baby no. 4 and I am 36 wks. I was scheduled to have a c-section at 37 1/2 (June 7) wks but my doctor is taking about maybe moving it forward to next week when I am just 37 wks. Will have to wait and see. I managed to stay of bp meds for my other pregnancies but I guess being older (I'm 40) they don't want to take any chances. How are you feeling? The bp meds make me drowsy.

  • Oh mama I'm sorry that you're going through that! I had BP issues with both my girls because I've had BP issues in general since I was 17, but I wasn't on meds with either pregnancy. *hugs* I'm sure if your doctors are monitoring everything that closely everything is going to be okay.
