    I started labetelol at around 8-10 weeks Pregnant from memory. My first pregnancy I started it at 15 weeks and went to the max dose and then they added in aldomet and a few others. This time they added in aldomet at about 20 weeks and another beta blocker at 25. They can be yuk, the side effects can be awful, im sorry you have to take it

    I've had two pregnancies with high BP (pregnancy induced) and in my experience getting onto it early prevented it from getting out of control. I was on strict bed rest with the first pregnacy from 17 weeks and with that and all the meds I made it to 36 weeks. To 37 with the second with partial bedrest. I was under the care of a kidney specialist and a high risk. It seems with bp its better to start on the drugs early rather than wait till it's oitvof control.

    Yes, the Presolol is the same as Labetalol, but during first trimester it's not recommended. That's why I'm a little nervous. The Methyldopa (Aldomet) I can;t tolerate at all so it's not an option.

    Exactly. My BP was well controlled when I was on the Tritace but my GP wanted me off that and onto something safer prior to my embryo transfer. And since we are using an egg donor who is quite young (32) and not my own crusty 42 year old eggs, the chances of success are quite good, so I didn't want to take any unnecessary risks.

    You're right though. BP problems suck and I'd much rather take nothing!
