I remember when I was released from the hospital I was given quite a few instructions, including calling the hospital with BP readings that were too high (I don't quite remember my call in numbers), as well as reporting severe visual disturbances, and various other symptoms. I was also told that I could get very anxious and fearful, and if so, I could get some medication to help with that.
Some women do experience PE post-partum up until 6 weeks after delivery, so it is important to keep that in mind. When you were released from the hospital, what have your doctors told you to look out for? If you are not certain, I'd call and inquire about it. I hope you will feel better soon.
