Must come down right?
Today was my follow up with Dr. L, my PCP for my blood pressure. I was a bit nervous going in to be honest. All that talk of ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, and the like scared the creeping crud out of me. Each of those brought with them varying degrees of “is this or is this not safe” during TTC time. So imagine my delight when Dr. L’s medical assistant took my pressure and it was 136/83. Basically a little elevated, but otherwise completely innocuous pressure.
Bottom line, I do NOT need any medication as of right now. I have been told that in 10, 15, maybe even 20 that I will but right now I do not. However the pill is NEVER an option for me. So IVF then is NEVER an option because they control the cycle with birth control pills. He said this in non negotiable. He said it was remarkable that my BP after one week on BC was 150/90, and then just a month later even after being on Provera that I am totally normal. He said if I am going to ever consider taking the pill again that he would advise that I see another PCP because he would not be pleased. However as far as IUI goes since there is no birth control prep he has issued the all clear! So I am really excited about that.
I can’t believe the upswing that Jacob and I are on! First his clean bill of health and then mine. How do you get so lucky after such a swing of bad? Or is this like the economy…eliptical? Yes, perhaps that is it…what goes up much come down and vice versa!
