In brief: Lots of preg HTN?
26F asks "Do Drs see lots of gestational HTN?" Depends on where u practice & how good u r at recognizing it.
Seeing & recognizing are not the same. So if it is your 1st preg or you are poor or African American u r more likely to have it. It is the major cause of fetal and maternal death. Do not fool around with it. See your team regularly when pregnant. Can only Dxed by BP check. Get er done!
