I have a friend that has high blood pressure and she is very early in her pregnancy.... 6 weeks and 6 days.... what affect if any does her high blood pressure have on the fetus. Specifically on the rate of the heartbeat?

Hi hon: It has a HUGE affect on the baby, whatever is affecting the mother affects the baby. Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Infections etc. I hope she is being monitored by her doctor for this. I have added this link below, that both you and she can take a look at. It's not over sensational - so everyone isn't panicking. But at the same time gives a lot of good information. Your friend should be monitored more closely than what is usually custom for another pregnant woman. So I wish her and her baby good luck and health. Hope this helps.
