Wow...BP post partum

<t>So, I'm 4 months post partum and I was feeling a little dizzy. I decided to take my blood pressure lying on my left side just to see.<br/> <br/> It was 94/50!<br/> <br/> To think that my OB was okay with 140/90s while pregnant!!!<br/> <br/> Thankfully, I appear to have a healthy baby girl with no...

Re : Mollie arrived safely and THEN my bp's went up

Congrats on your baby!
My BP was up postpartum, too. I was put on Labetalol, but my BP stabilized back to normal about 2 weeks post partum when all the fluid finally came off (I gained 30, but was down 25 by then!)

Re : What Were Your First Symptoms of P/E or HELLP?

<t>Well, I gained 10 lbs (4 in one week!) in one month...I'd been eating lots of cupcakes, so I attributed it to that...I had a high BP at that visit, too, but it went down when I laid down.<br/> <br/> Then, I'd been getting winded and feeling dizzy/light-headed. I was so oblivious, I thought I was ...

Re : Does PE effect milk supply?

I delivered at 37 weeks, no nursing issues, but she did drop 13 oz in our 4 days in the hospital. Now at 2 months, she's up 4+lbs from her birth weight.

I was on labetalol for a week post partum, apparently it can help with milk supply.

Re : 24 HR URINE QUESTION

When I was in the hospital, they just kept the jug on ice in a bucket. Can you do that?

Re : Lung Maturity Amnio Question

Baby checked out fine always and my bloodwork was always normal too. <br/> <br/> I was on strict bedrest but wasn't induced until 37 weeks and I'd had the st...

Re : Tachycardia and PE history?

I had mild pre-e, but my heart rate was frequently 130s-150s. Apparently it's ultra common in pregnancy.

Re : 37 or 38 week induction?

<r>Wow, thanks for the info Caryn, that makes me feel a little better about my induction. I just wished I'd asked my OB to take things slower. I mean, for a FTM, 6 hours from start to finish is REALLY fast, in my opinion, especially since 1 and 1/2 of those were spent just waiting for the epidural t...
