    Hi Op, congrats on your precious girl. Hon, if you're not doing well mentally, talk to the hospital. See if there is someone you can speak to. It's a hard time even when everything goes well. You need lots of support and it's ok to ask for help. The baby blues are probably kicking in but with the added pressure of being apart from your girl would intensify it greatly.

    @Reneeharry sounds like the 3 day blues have hit you. The hormonal changes make you feel highly emotional.

    I was an emotional mess on day 3. It hit me like a tonne of bricks that I'd have to leave hospital without DS. I remember bawling in the shower.

    It's hard to leave as I mentioned, but it is great to be back at home with your own comforts.

    As for your BP, it'll likely settle down again, but it should still be checked a few times a day. Can you get your hands on a blood pressure monitor for home use? You can get them from pharmacies.

    I have had no experience with high BP/preeclampsia. What I have had issues with is anxiety, sleeplessness etc in the hospital after birth.

    I was hit by the blues hard.

    But I worry about your BP not being under control. I know the hospital environment is not pleasant but please be sure that you are going to be well and safe for your baby.

    Speak to your dr about options. Ask to speak to someone about your MH which is important to address early. Then you can be comfortable you made the right decision

    I didn't have PE but did experience high BP. I undersrand that you are anxious at the moment byt please discuss dc yourself with your doctor for medication as my bp was still elevated after 6 weeks around 160s/90s and it's not going to be safe for you to drive without it under control.

    Huge hugs @Reneeharry. It's so, so hard being where you are right now.
    After my DS was born, I had to stay in hospital for seven days to get my BP under control. I know hospital sucks but do make sure that you will be ok at home before you get discharged.

    So I discharged my self from hospital
    I don't feel very well I'm anxious I can't sleep and I've got blurry vision a little bit.
    Everytine I try and sleep my body won't let me I'm so over it.
    I need to sleep and relax but I can't. I'm going to the doc tomorrow hopefully they can't help me monitor my blood pressure.
    My poor little girl is still in nicu
    She's doing great though.

    please take care of yourself @Reneeharry and if anything doesn't seem right, please call the doctor ASAP.

    is your dh taking some time off to be with you this week and help out around the house etc?

    rest up and I hope you start feeling better in the comfort of home soon. awesome news about Brooklyn doing great in the nicu.

    140/90 isn't too high, it's normal for me however if you don't have a BP monitor at home then you should get one and do it several times a day. I had post partum PE and it happened 7 days post birth. It came on very quickly and I was admitted back in straight away to ICU for 4 days. Hospital sucks so I get wanting to leave but be sure to monitor yourself. It can take days if not weeks for meds to control BP consistently after PE.
