There is no way to get pregnant without ovulating. If that's the case then you should see an infertility specialist who can figure out why you're not ovulating and give medication to help with that. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I recommend serial BP's to confirm if this is consistent or a one time measurement, as pain, nervousness, etc. can all have an effect. ...Read more

It would probably be prudent not to try increased vigorous sex or unusual positions if you are not already used to it. Your previous delivery at 32 weeks has no effect on this pregnancy if all else is normal at this time. Good luck with the new family addition. ...Read more
