There are big gaps in my memory from my hospital stay and my first couple weeks at home. I think in the hospital it was due more to the mag but, once I got home from just the shock. I too wanted to know every detail of my delivery and begged my husband to fill in all the holes. Unfortunately though, my husband usually refuses to speak about it, saying that he has no desire to go down that road.
Can you make an appt with your OB to discuss a lot of these things? I was fortunate in that mine took as much time as I wanted/needed after delivery to try and make sense of it all.
As far as your current meds go, I would keep calling that doctor until you get a response. Post-partum depression seems to be common after "normal" pregnancies/deliveries so, I can only imagine what that means for the rest of us...
37 weeks is great and many of us pray that we make it there next time but, unfortunately it doesn't gaurantee that all will be well. I think that technically your baby is not considered a preemie but, preeclampsia can still cause many horrendous things for both you and baby. I have read far too many stories here of women making to to 37 weeks + with preeclampsia and then delivering a still-born baby because they IMO, they were not cared for properly or, things went from bad to worse way too quickly... I really think that your doctor was trying to ensure you and baby the best possible outcome.
Please take care
