What had happened is that I did have severe preeclampsia the day I delivered and my bp did drop for a little (my ob thinks the blood loss from my c-section masked the high bp for awhile) but it had creeped back up before I even left the hospital to the 145/90ish range which she said was higher than normal but considering how high it was before I delivered that it may take a little to come back down and she wasn't worried too much about it and said she'd see me in a week to make sure it was going down..well a week later it had risen a little more and she still wasn't too concerned and saw me a week later and it was about the same..then on the 21st,I got a headache that I can't even describe,I couldn't see anything but spots,I vomited non stop,my stomach hurt,and I couldn't breathe.I called her and she said go to the er and she would be waiting for me..I got there and she immediately took me into an exam room and my bp was 170/110 and she immediately drew labs and started the magnesium and she said I actually had post partum preeclampsia and at 3 weeks past she's never seen it before but it does happen.i'm home on labatelol and a water pill now and feeling better but wow how scary!! I am very lucky that no permanent damage was done.
