Thanks for all the well wishes! We are home now, and Zachary is doing great! He has already gained weight, and is loving to breastfeed. My blood pressure was okay in the hospital, but once I got home, it rose to 140s/90s again, so back on the aldomet for me. I have major swelling, but my doctor said that is normal for a c section, and for the all pitocin I got, both before and after he was born. I have had a little headache today, but I think it is just from the high blood pressure, since I just started the aldomet again a few hours ago and since my reflexes seem fine. Hopefully everything will get better and stay that way! I am just so lucky to have Zachary alive and well!
