Having high blood pressure during pregnancy is not necessarily an issue, especially if the woman does not have preeclampsia. In fact, there are many types of high blood pressure that can be caused for a number of reasons. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
One common condition is called gestational hypertension. With this, women develop high blood pressure after 20 weeks of being pregnant. However, an excess of protein is not found in the urine. Many women who have this type of high blood pressure will eventually develop preeclampsia.
Another condition that is common is called chronic hypertension. This is something that usually follows a woman into her pregnancy, meaning she had high blood pressure before she became pregnant. It is also considered to be chronic if high blood pressure lasts longer than twelve weeks.
The important thing to remember when you have high blood pressure is that you will need to be cared for a bit differently when you are pregnant. You should watch for signs that you are having complications and consult with your doctor carefully. Also, make sure that you go to every doctor’s appointment so that you can be certain that your baby is getting the oxygen and blood supply that it needs to be healthy.
