you have PIH in last pregnancy, there are high chances of developing high BP in this next pregnancy in future , so in that case there are chances of some growth retardtion in growing child if BP starts increases ,so to prevent as a prophylaxis your Dr. might have prescribe ascard , i think you can start ,
it doesnt have side effect like dizziness , in low dose of 75 mg it has very less side effect , ya it can cause bleeding so be careful for that .
take care
