I'm not freaking out, but prayers/thoughts are appreciated. My blood pressure has been 150-155/100-105 and I've had a headache. This is for two days (I really should have gone in yesterday, but you know how the day/night gets away with a brand new baby).
My OB is out of town on Wednesdays, they had me call my PCP. Her office was going to send me to their walk-in clinic, but my PCP herself (I LOVVVVE my PCP) stepped in, called me, and said absolutely not. Probably because sending me and my 6-day-old son to a walk-in clinic during flu season is a stupid idea?
She's calling my OB and they're figuring out where I should go.
This sucks. But I'm also really thankful it didn't happen while I was still pregnant, or while I was in labor.
****My PCP got in touch with my OB and they are starting me on a third blood pressure med. Blah. But way better than doing the whole pre-e battery of tests, most of which are useless for me unless I have actual HELLP Syndrome...which I doubt and would be a much bigger deal.
If my blood pressure isn't down by Friday or Monday (probably Friday), they're going to get in touch with my nephrologist.
