Hi Michelle -

I realize my response to your post is quite delayed but I've been going through this new state 'chapter' section and trying to monitor the posts and make responses. I've just recently taken on the role of helping to coordinate groups who are interested in starting a 'chapter' in their state or region and wondered whether you are still interested?

I know you've been a member for a long while and are the On Bedrest moderator. I also see that you have 3 little ones (!) and don't know if you still have the energy for yet another task! But, I wanted to at least reach out to you.

In case you are interested, as coordinator you would be the key contact person and would basically organize/lead the group's activities, communicate with the members in your area, and be the liaison to myself and the national office. We currently have 15 states/regions represented.

If you are interested in doing this, I'll set up a phone call with you to get some information and to answer any questions. If we're comfortable with everything and we agree to move forward, I would send you some coordinator documents and the list of registered members in your area for you to make contact with.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi again Michelle!

Oooops! I have to apologize for sending the previous post to you before I realized that you are currently on my list of state coordinators for IL!! I'm trying to go through the list of states quickly before my son wakes up and at the moment my 4 year old daughter is endlessly distracting me!

I'd love for you to go to the Diva Network section and reply to my recent post (Calling all Divas) and let me know what's been going on with your group lately. I'm trying to catch up with everyone and try to get us all better connected.

Thanks!
Carol

Has anyone experienced high blood pressure for an extended period of time after delivery? If so, for how long and what was the treatment? I delivered 8 weeks ago and am still having bp issues.

Michelle
My BP stayed elevated (130/80-140/90) for approximately 6-9 months pp after my first son was born and since my second pregnancy it has hoovered around 130/80 since then (much higher then the 120/60 I was 5 years ago hehe)

I have onyl been started on BP meds once last year, which caused an allergic reaction and I have done nothing since.
