While I am not a first time mom, it feels like the first time. I had my first 2 boys when I was 19, and 21. My first son is now 19 and my second son would be 17 but he was killed in a car wreck 9 mos ago at the age of 16. I also have a 26 month old daughter. To hear the words "high risk pregnancy" scared me enough, not only for my child, but for myself! My question is , I have been on high blood pressure medicine for over a year now. I had borderline high blood pressure while I was pregnant with my daughter, but didn't have to take medication. Now that I am 38 and on medicien I worry that the medicine will harm my baby but I also worry that even with the medicine I will have a heart attack or stroke! Has anyone gone through this? I am so scared and confused.
