High Blood Pressure


Two weeks ago I went to my doctor and was told my blood pressure was reading high and to monitor it. Two days later we went to the ER because it was reading 170/125 on the home machine. I was given labetalol in the IV and prescribed it and they blessedly did not keep me overnight. We had a little scare when the nurses couldn't find the baby's heartbeat on the doppler (my husband was about to lose it) but they pulled out the ultrasound and baby was wiggly and all was well. I go back to my OB this Friday to check on everything. My blood pressure still is reading high with my bottom number anywhere between 89 and 104. I have a history of high blood pressure and take Celexa for anxiety. My job is very stressful and I'm terrified to be placed on bedrest because we just can't afford it. My anxiety is very high this morning thinking about it end worrying about baby. Anyone else experiencing or has experienced this? I'm 16 weeks today.
