Markdown in Approval, line breaks with headings and tables

I'm trying to figure out Markdown syntax for use in Approvals.  It appears impossible to put line breaks after headings and before and after tables.  I've tried a variety of things and nothing works.  Using Markdown is vastly better than having everything centered or jumbled together with no formatting at all, but it's still annoying that such simple things appear to be impossible.

 

Here's what's in the Approval details box (with + to show spaces):

 

# Approval Form
## Sub-Heading++
Sample paragraph.  *This sentence is in italics.*  **This is bold.**  Everything works but the line breaks after the headings and before and after the table.++
Second paragraph with rambling text for no apparent reason other than to get a long enough paragraph to make it look like a paragraph.++
|  |  |
|-----------:|:-----------:|
| Cell A1 | Cell A2 |
| Cell B1 | Cell B2 |++
++
[Sample Link](https://www.google.com/)

And this is how it looks on the Flows web page:

The only way I can get any white space after a header or before/after a table is to add a paragraph with a dash or something in it.  I can do without headers, but tables could be really helpful.
