I had my son 2 weeks ago ( he was stillborn). My blood pressure got kinda high during labor but I thought it went back to normal before I left the hospital. I had a checkup with my doctor today and it's still high. I go back in a week to have it rechecked. Is this normal? I don't have a history of having high blood pressure and didn't have it during pregnancy. My doctor said it should have went down by now.
I hear you completely on the whole medication. I had an under-lying disease I never knew about until I delivered my oldest at 34 weeks and when she was 5 months old, I found out I had a rare kidney disease. I've had two surgeries to correct the blockage in my main artery. Ugh. Not fun. I hope you heal from your pain and loss - and again, I'm so sorry! <3

Im in the same boat, my bp jumped after delivery and im 8weeks pp, its very serious if u get sever headachs or see spots go to the er! Or upper abdominal pain.... I had to be hospitalized for a week and on meds for two, i hated it and my bp is going down but still prehypertenstion stage. Im only 23! Read my post. But u should deff monitor ur bp. I have postpartum preeclampsia.. Protein in urine is the diffreence and some people dont get it untill after 6 weeks pp. Do some reasearch! People who dont know they have it often have seziures and comas. Very serious!! Dont take high bp lightley!! My bp was 210/115 one week pp.
