View Full Version : Blood pressure
Since our second came along (less than 2 months ago) my blood pressure has hit the roof.
Has anyone else found their blood pressure has risen with new additions? If so, how did you deal with it and how did you reduce it?
I have high BP anyway. I came off mediaction a year before I conceived and went back on half way through my pregnancy. I had hoped it would go back down but it hasn't :(
I am currently on medication (2 tablets a day).
It also helps to avoid alcohol, smoking, foods high in salt etc.
Your Dr should be able to help you, and it will make you feel a lot better :)
I also have to watch my blood pressure closely. Losing weight if you are overweight is one of the best things to reduce BP. Five kilos can make a big difference.
