Did you have an epidural? With my second son, they had major problems "hitting the right spot" and had to poke my spine about 8 times. After I gave birth, I had headaches for about 2 weeks. They said it was due to the epidural and offered a weird medical procedure to fix it. However, I opted for Vicodin [:D] and the headaches went away. Get a nap everyday if you can. My OB recommended it and when I started to do it, I was better in a matter of days....Even 20 minutes if you can?
btw, with both of my kids, it took about 2 months for my bp to resume a somewhat normal state. There aren't a lot of long term studies of preeclampsia (that I know of), but both my mother and grandmother who had pre-e both now have chronic high bp...that's what we might have to look forward to.
