    Thanks heaps for the update @BlondeinBrisvegas. I really appreciate it. I'm glad to hear bubs are well but am concerned for Julie. Thank goodness she has good family support. Ta again.

    Just i-Folic for me too. I did take some extra magnesium when I got leg cramps but I don't know that it helped much. Thinking of taking some iron and vitamin C combo as Doc was concerned about some dizzy spells I have been having. Had iron studies and a full blood count done today but I figure sooner is better than later.

    Hi ladies
    Do any of you have high blood pressure? I went to GP today and it was 160/95. I'm only on wazza's supplements and 5mg prednisone. So can't be meds. I have put on weight from cycles. For those on high bp meds did you find it interfered with your ivf cycles?
    Did you find the ivf medications and blood pressure tablets are ok together?
    Sorry just having a freak out about another blOODY thing to stress out about. I've been told to monitor for a week or so and come back to GP. I'm actually just at the point where I'll take the medication just because it's easier than trying to lower it naturally by cutting salt or loosing weight.

    On my second own egg cycle I did EVERYTHING!!!! Every frucking vitamin, supplement, high protein, no caffeine, alkaline diet etc etc and had none fertilise! after that I said fruck it!
    I was on a ****e load of stuff up until my last 2 cycles then I though fruck it too. I actually saw a post from a lady who paired everything back as she said it was stressing her out taking all the supplements (and paying for it too). That was pretty much the case for me. I kept taking the ubiquinol and stayed away from some of the inflammatory dietary stuff (things I know I react to like gluten) but otherwise tried the less stress approach. Having said that I have no idea if it helped or hindered. I just got sick of taking so much stuff.

I'm actually just at the point where I'll take the medication just because it's easier than trying to lower it naturally by cutting salt or loosing weight.

    I have high BP. First got it at 17 (smoker, overweight and family history induced). Went on meds, lost a heap of weight, gave up smoking, and got it under control. Came off the meds shortly thereafter.

    Since starting IVF it's high again. A combination of the IVF drugs and my increasing weight. I now take 5mg of Tritace a day and that controls it well. When gearing up for transfers I go onto Aldomet, which is safe to use during pregnancy. Doesn't work as well and has to be taken 3 times a day, but it's safe.

    If it's any consolation, around the 160/90 mark I start feeling terrible. Once I take my meds and BP is under control I feel much better within myself.

    Thanks @BIB for the update.

    To JulieM, congratulations on the safe delivery of your two gorgeous babies. I'm very sorry you had a tough time of it though, and am wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Give those babies a kiss on the cheek for me

    Thanks so much @Blossom74 for the info. Makes me feel a bit better. I'm glad you find it manageable during IVF too. Thanks.

    You're welcome And hey, if it comes down to going onto meds to get this under control, it's not necessarily forever. You can work on weight/diet/exercise and may be able to cut them down/eliminate them totally in due course.
