Ooh, that's a good question! My (non-medical) guess would be that when your hypertension resolves, your protein probably would, too.
But since it's been past six weeks (the time most docs would say it takes for preeclampsia to clear completely) I'd make an appointment with either your family doctor or an internal medicine doctor to get it checked out.
I have heard it said that when hypertension hangs on for a long time after preeclampsia, it can be a sign that chronic hypertension or some other underlying disorder is complicating things. (Great, something to look forward to, huh?[}:)])
take care, and let us know how you're doing!
