    She got her canula out today because she's on full feeds. Today's the first day I properly believed she'll be ok and truly bonded with her and I think that's because I went home. I struggled so much yesterday and Friday I was a total mess.... That's why I discharged myself I was afraid I'd have a breakdown. And now I'm home my symptoms came back so frustrating....
    I'll go to emergency tomorrow
    Yep those prems love their caffeine! The nurses and I always used to joke about how much DS loved his cinos.

    Honestly, she sounds like such a strong little girl!! I bet you'll be taking her home before you know it.

    How're your boobs going? I got mastitis so many times with my prem.

    Take care and do let us know how you get on tomorrow xxx

    I'm thankful for your story..... I'm going to hospital tomorrow and get checked out...

    They love their coffee, I really hope so I can't wait for her to be home.
    Boobs killed me when milk came in I was up all night crying to the nurses saying this isn't normal. I was already using a pump to get it to start I think it made it worse but that's what they told me to do. Ouch I hope I don't get mastitis I've heard horror stories....

    I will thank you

    Especially since you're still having neurological symptoms (the blurry vision), it's a bit concerning that you've discharged against medical advice.

    It can take quite a few days, sometimes a week at least for blood pressure to settle down after pre-eclampsia, especially when you've had such severe pre-eclampsia.
    Firstly congratulations on your beautiful bub!

    As I mentioned previously my experience was a looong time ago, so I don't really remember everything but I definitely agree with this, preeclampsia does not just go away after you give birth, we had made it to week 38, so my DD was fine, however my blood pressure went berserk, and I had to spend the week in hospital until everything settle down a bit, even then I had to spend the next few weeks monitoring my blood pressure and checking in with my dr.

    Take care of yourself- especially as your still having symptoms, measure your blood pressure regularly, and if you feel something is not right go see a dr, right away, don't wait!

    You're in the right place to sort it out and fingers crossed its the best answer. Try to rest while you're there even if you can't sleep. Sleep deprivation really is the worst I honestly feel for you xx

    Maybe ask for something to help you sleep while you are there. There are some BF friendly options.

    So I went to my local hospital today feeling totally ****. Still having blurry vision and spots. They checked my bp, heart, chest X-ray, bloods and urine and everything came back clear.
    Blood pressure is up 140/92 it was 130/82 yesterday. They gave me 5mg of amlodipine and told me I was free to go home and go see my gp to monitor it.
    Does this sound ok?
