Pregnant. High BP. History of miscarriage. Suggestions for normal delivery?

Sir, My wife is reaching 9th month in 3 days. from the last 30 days onwards we noticed high BP . the doctor had given some medicines but we didnt used those medicines. But after completing 1 month the BP was raised to 140/100. So again our doctor suggested medicines saying the amniotic fluid is also less & the baby growth is also a little less. this time we started using medicines and after using those medicines for 1 week, we consulted the doctor today and now the BP is 160/100. Our doctor increaed the dose of BP tablets & asked to check the BP reading by tomoroow. Pls help me wether everything is going positively or not...........and also 1 more information, earlier there was a misscarrage for my wife and this pregnancy was immediate to that like within a gap of 2 months.......Pls provide your valuable suggestions upon this and any methods to overcome this High BP at this stage. and any suggestions for having normal deliver to her?

Thanks for your query,
High BP during pregnancy is very dangerous for both mother and fetus. Baby may suffer from growth problems , prematurity and lots of other problems. Mother may progress to a severe disease known as ecclampsia if BP is not controlled . Ecclampsia is a life threatening complication for the mother. So be very vigilant and follow all the advice given by your doctor. Get your BP checked regularly twice daily.Get urinary protein test done as adviced by your doctor.
Best of luck and take care.
Hope it helps you..
