I am 37 week pregnant. Visited for regular check-up today and the doctor found that the BP was high (90/130). BP has been in normal range all through the pregnancy so far (110-20/70-80). Sugar is normal, random is showing 80. HB level is also 10.1. Doctor has said that they will be doing c-section on 6th of August (On that day gestation will be around 38 weeks 2 days) to avoid any risk. In the meanwhile doctor has suggested to take BP reading for next two days. He has also advised to take labetalol 100 mg twice daily if the diastolic goes above 90. KIndly suggest if it is ok. Can I also take labetalol 100 mg tablets along with regular iron and calcium tablets.

Yes. If diastolic Bp is above 90 then you have to take labebetolol. Yes iron calcium should be taken along.
