Hi and welcome back to the board!

I'm Victoria, 29, and DH and I are WTT our first! I am sorry to hear about your migraines and HBP. We had a member named Melissa here who got advice from her docfor for a different drug to take during PG, perhaps you could ask your doctor if there are any safe drugs to take?

Regarding your neck pain: I too am worried because I deal with hip and knee chronic pain. All I can say is that keep looking for something that helps you heal and listen to yourself. Perhaps some yoga, Pilates or Alexander Technique could help? Best of luck, pain sucks!

It sounds like you are on a great financial plan! Feel free to join us in our saving money and losing weight groups!

Hello. I have high bp as well and the doc had.me on two meds while ttc and pregnant. Procardia which I am still on and methyldopa. There are meds while pg and breastfeeding as well. Check with your doc or obgyn. The good thing was I got extra ultrasounds since I was considered high risk. But my bp was great through my pgcy. This time will be the same and,also being over 35. Hope that helps.

Hi Erin

I'm glad I found your post! My soon-to-be-husband and I are waiting to try but I have concerns about HBP too. I have a congenital heart defect and have had HBP/been on meds since I was 12 (I am now 21). After years and years of wondering I finally got the courage to ask my doctor if I would be able to have children...long story short he said yes but that we would have to change my medications first to one that is suitable to take during pregnancy.
