I had my first child 3 years ago via emergency c-sect. I labored for about 22 hours before the c-sect and although I had a normal pregnancy I ended up with a strange high fever during labor, and my boy ended up in special care with pneumonia after birth. I was still on the ward 4 days after the birth with Oscar in special care when I started to feel 'strange'. I couldn't describe it but I knew I didn't feel right. I buzzed the nurse and they checked my stats and my blood pressure was sky high. They took blood and urine and as soon as the results came back they told me I had post parting preeclampsia and raced me to intensive care. I had to spend 40 hours in a magnesium drip and the whole thing got pretty scary. I am really so lucky that I was still in hospital when it happened and I wasn't at home with it undiagnosed as I have read some horror stories about it. I am just TTC baby number 2 and just trying to connect with anybody else who has had pppe and and trying to find out the likelihood of it reoccurring.
