Post Partum Testing/Care

Postby MomTimesThree » Sat Jul 14, 2012 03:38 am

I'm wondering what I should expect/request when it comes to PP care. After our 2nd I was so glad he was here and healthy and that our BP went back down to normal I never pursued anything else and was just glad to not see doctor's offices. I was so sure everything was just a fluke anyway. Now since during our 3rd things went wonky, I'm wanting to make sure I get some answers, but I'm not even sure the questions to ask.

I'll be going in a week (2 weeks PP) for a BP check (and still monitoring at home) and then I assume from there just my 6 week PP appointment. I'm thinking I should request a 24 hour... though not sure when is best to do that since our levels were higher than normal (194) at 10 weeks, but I'm not sure what else if anything.

Thanks in advance!
