If you are already 26 weeks, there isn't anything you can take at this stage. High risk wopmen are given low dose aspirin, but this has to be taken from much earlier in the pregnancy.

HI, Unfortunately there is really very little you can do about it more especialy if you have a genetic disposition to it. Take it easy, don' t worry about it and insist on a blood pressure test every check up, go to the doc if you' re not well and just really enjoy your pregnancy as much as possble.
