VV and getting knocked up

From: Krystle Koran


I just wanted to mention that I had not been diagnosed properly until I was pregnant. Doctors told me I have VV but I don't really know what that means and they can't tell me. I suppose life is like normal but when the baby came into the picture I suffered attacks several times a day. Since beta blockers are bad for the child I was put onto a VERY high salt diet, but strangely the symptoms totally disappeared in the third trimester. Could it be because of increased blood volume? My BP before was incrediably low but now it has shot up to 135/80 and yet my doctors say it's not pre-eclampsia despite the fact I started with a low BP and it was a big jump for me. I hope to read all the posts soon but for now I am puzzled by my body. Delivery will be fun, and pending on April 5th. Will let people know how it goes.
