In brief: No

Definitely not! you must stop the ACE inhibitor immediately or it can cause damage to your developing child.

In brief: No

Ace inhibitors are not used during pregnancy.
There are lots of alternatives and your doctor should be able to find a safe medication that controls your blood pressure. Ace inhibitors can cause birth defects and should be avoided.
