I am 42 and recently suffered a stroke, about three months ago. Within the last few days, I have been given the great news that I am 6 weeks pregnant. What are the risks with this pregnancy? My blood pressure is under control and my stress level is relatively low, minus the normal things in life and my 2 yr old. :-) Any thoughts?
Are you on any medications? Some can affect the fetus.
For you, gestational hypertension is a concern. Sometimes your blood pressure will rise high, sometimes dangerously so, during pregnancy.
Regular checkups for both of you are very important.
Talk to your doctor/neurologist for specifics. We don't have your past history.
Congratulations and good luck!
