I wish there was a precise answer for this, but unfortunately, it varies according to each patient and their unique biochemistry! Generally, most enyzmes begin dropping 6-8 weeks postpartum, and the majority of patients return to normal after 12 months. That being said, it can be difficult to regain balance, because preeclampsia can sometimes "unmask" underlying issues that continue to manifest after the postpartum period. Have you talked with your general care provider or ob about your concerns? Sounds like they are monitoring you carefully, and you should ask them to talk to you about why they think your numbers may be rising again.
And keep in touch; let us know how you are doing!
