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.
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.
drug addicts get pregnant,i think its all about age TBH,for me anyway.
@JulieMalooley I hope you are OK and CONGRATS on your twins!! xxx
big hugs @Blossom74, its all part of the process I think, having these days. Its not nice, but I think its healthy that its working its way out of you so you can move on and be OK and be ready for the next run of amazing stuff. Hope you're ok xxx

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
