    Default After birth issues, normal?

    Dd is 4days old.

    After I had her I didn't get any obs taken until day 3. My blood pressure was 99/68(not sure off normal, usually it's 120/70). Anyway she was posterior all I'm getting excruciating back pain that I'm taking panadiene for.

    My concern at the moment is I'm really dizzy and have a migraine. Is that normal? I don't know if it's a bp problem or if it's from the pain. Should I see the ED tomorrow?

    eta my temp is 38.6

    Did you have an epidural? If so contact the hospital asap

    120/80 is normal. Low bp could make you light headed which could be making you dizzy. If you're taking panadeine and still in pain then go in, just to be sure . Hope you feel better!

    with a temp (only slight) Could it be an infection?? would it be too early for mastitis?? Or maybe retained placenta thats causing it? Would that be too early? I Would call the hospital and go to ER whenever you could. It could be nothing, but i would definately want to check it out. Having a newborn isnt easy, let alone in pain!

    Hope you get to the bottom of it soon

    Your temp is a little bit up- that could indicate that your body is fighting an infection. Bit TMI but loosing excessive blood can make you fell dizzy and lightheaded. No matter what if your still not feeling good tomorrow, get checked out. Better to be safe than sorry, big hugs and congratulations on the birth of your daughter

    I thought maybe infection. My lochia seems normal with no odour or funny colour. My milk came in yesterday so my breasts are engorged but I don't know if it's too early for mastitis, it would have had to develop in less than 24hrs.

    I think ill make a trip in tomorrow, unless I get worse then Ill get an ambulance tonight
