I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures. It was indeed my easiest recovery from pre-e: pressures back down to normal a week postpartum, plus pressures never got severely high.
Unfortunately I wound up with a postpartum infection and then caught a virus while Baby Annabelle had feeding issues due to jaundice/supplementation/bf'ing issues and lost more weight than usual. She is gaining now though so we are on the right track.
In the hospital after she was born:
Hypothyroid mom to
Connor (severe pre-e at 38 weeks)
Claire ("mild" pre-e at 37 weeks)
Annabelle (chronic HTN & GD, superimposed pre-e @34 weeks, induction @37 weeks)
