I am so sorry for you loss, like me I just lost my baby girl, Soleil Sophia, about a week before you. I was 32 weeks however. I had some symptoms, but the ones that are usually associated with pregnancy, like swelling and headaches. My bp just crept on me like you. I found this site fairly early, it will really help you to try and understand everything at this difficult confusing time. I really learned about this condition reading things on here. Im still on bp pills, but I started at 4 a day then 2 a day and now down to 1 all within 2 weeks, my bp started going almost way too low from the pills. I also bought a fairly cheap bp cuff at CVS to monitor it everyday. You want to make sure you take it easy on yourself for a little bit, from questioning of the doctors, the pre e can last up to 6 weeks after giving birth. But make a plan with your doc. My doc gave me certain times I can drive, swim, exercise, etc. I think my laying low has helped my bp return to normal with the pills, but everyones body is different. The poster above says she is still experiencing the protein, and Im sure your doc will keep an eye on that. I just went to my doc today and he said my proteien levels are lowered than last week and that it wasn't even that high last week. Keep coming back to educate yourself and keeping you in my thoughts.
