My doctor recently told me stop taking blood pressure medication that I had been on during a pregnancy. Today I have had several blood pressure readings in the range of 187/107 and I do not feel very well. I have called my doctor but will probably have to wait until the end of the day to get a return call. What shold I do?

Hello, I am having chronic high blood pressure, and my cardiologist proposed that I stop my medication in order to get pregnant. My current HBP is around 13/95 - 13/100 (not pregnant yet). I have a stressfull job and I drive about 2.5 houres per day. Do you think that it is a good idea to stop the medication? I am a bit afraid that it could heart my baby. Do you think that my Ob Gyn could ask me to stop working earlier during pregnancy? Thanks Sam
