    Hello all, I'm new here and hoping for some insight and information on what to do about my blood pressure being out of control.

    I am 39 now, have 4 son's my last child being born in 2008, so it's been a long time since I've carried. This pregnancy was very unplanned and unexpected. Prior to concieving I was on Lisinopril and Norvasc which worked well.

    I am 8 weeks 6 days, started on Labetalol about 4 weeks ago, I'm up to 400mg 3x a day and it's not touching it or making any difference. My best reading yesterday was 160/100 but I'm staying around 200/120 ranges which I know is not ok. Called my OB and they wanted me to go to maternal fetal medicine doctor, the current ob would not change meds. I'm incredibly frustrated and stressed.

    I am dealing with bad headaches from the time I wake up until I go to bed. In general just feeling bad.

    Any help or advice? I am actually considering not continuing on as I'm scared for myself. Not wanting to die trying to carry. Any help is appreciated.
