Thank you melly. I knew I was heading to PE again despite the doctors telling me I looked great. :) My bp is spiking still and I am seeing 160s/100s down to 120s/60s. I feel tired and dizzy still and dont feel safe being alone witht he baby yet. I'm still waiting for all these meds to kick in and get me stabilized. I feel so much like I did the last time. I know I will recover but I just want to feel like me again.

Congratulations Amy!! I was worried about you. Your last post before you delivered said you weren't feeling well and had an appt later that week for your 24 hr results. When you didn't post again I knew something was up. I'm so happy Izzy did so well. She's just beautiful! Its amazing how hard pregnancy can be on our bodies. I hope your recovery is easier this time around. I'm glad the lasix is doing its job. I'm so happy for you.

Thaks ladies. I have postpartum pe again. went to peri with pressures 165/104. they put me on lasix and back on altace, which may take a week to kick in. lasix working though, ahve some pretty good edema in my legs, feet and arms. Go back to peri again tomorrow. increased aldomet to 3x a day but had another spike in bp tonight to 167/104, took aldomet and bp slowly going down. will ask tomorrow if increase to 4x necesary till altace kicks in. checke my reflexes left side pretty hyperreflexic. CNS issues again, twithcing. i was lying in bed and whole body twicched. cat touched me and I jumped. peri checked my eyes today. said i do not have postpartum pe too bac right now but they are working on my meds to get my symptoms under control. sucks having cns issues again....took me years to recover from pe the first time. Izzy so beautiful but hard to spend time with her right now. just want to be on road to recovery, scared to death now though,alghough been thru this before still scared.

Congratulations on your beautiful little girl! I'm sorry you had to experience PE again. When I had my son the swelling in my feet and legs got worse after delivery (didn't think that was possible!)and they put me on a dieuretic in addition to Labatelol, it took a good
2-3 weeks for the swelling to go away. Hope you are able to get some rest, those first few weeks are so rough being sleep deprived on top of everything else! Take care :)
