Hi everyone! I am a super happy woman today, my son is HOME with me!! I am 4 days post partum. I do have a question, though. With my son, Aiden, I never needed BP meds at all (with the exception of the Magnesium Sulfate during delivery and 24 hours after). This time, I'm on Procardia XL and my BP is still very high. This morning before taking my med, my BP was 160/115. About 1 hour after taking it it was 150/104. Normally, my BP runs about 90/60 so these numbers are very high for me. I understand that it might take a while for my numbers to come down, but should I be worried that my numbers are still quite high even with the meds? I am still having some headaches, though not nearly as bad as before I had the baby. I would love your input-- I am to see my doctor at 2 weeks post partum-- Wednesday the 18th.
