I was healthy before my pregnancy and recovered relatively quickly after birth. I only had to take BP meds for up to 3 weeks pp. I am forgetful, but that has even started during my pregnancy (prgnancy brain). Now, just as kerisue, I attribute this more to grieving, being overwhelmed or stress, but even that has gotten better.

I do the same thing typing, as you can tell. My memory is getting bad and am gonna have to get that addressed. It has been getting worse in the past month. I hate what this has done to us :/

I was overweight and had mildly elevated bp prior to my pregnancy. I think I'm as healthy now (or healthier) than before my PE, but only because I've been working at it since Millie died.
Memory loss- no I haven't noticed that, but I have noticed that when I'm at work and get to typing quickly I type the wrong words a lot more than before- not just misspelling, but a completely wrong word, then I have to go back and redo it. Related? I don't know. I've just attributed that to stress or grief/depression.

How is your health after these syndromes? Were you in good health before you got pregnancy then after these syndromes it seems your health deteriated to a point? Do you have memory loss?
