Speak with OB: This is a very important topic. You can not take ace inhibitors or arb drugs (which reduce protenuria and decrease bp) during pregnancy. You may have to see a high risk pregnancy OB physician for a consult.

Not a good idea: Amlodipine (norvasc) should not be used at 25mg dose (of label use). It's way too high dose and will likely cause ankle swelling. Typical dose is 5mg or 10mg per day.

Could be ACE inhib.: If you are on medications from a class of ace inhibitors, they may cause cough even after years of taking them. Best idea- see your cardiologist. You should limit salt in your diet to <2gm/day.
