Preclampcia is high blood pressure when you are pregnant only. So you just have high blood pressure now after your baby is born? There could be many causes for that.. Did you ask your doc?

I've heard of it happening after you give birth, too, and being considered preeclampsia. The good thing is, you can be given more effective blood pressure meds when you're not pregnant. There's no specific cause of preeclampsia...it can run in your family, and you are at an increased risk of developing it if you're overweight.

Preaclamcia is high blood pressure during pregnancy. I know it can cause a lot of complications and if you have it you will probably be closely monitored for the rest of the pregnancy. I have two friends that suffered with this condition during pregnancy. The first friend's body started swelling up at 6 months pregnant and her blood pressure was dangerously high so she had to have an emergency cesarean. Her baby was only 1lb 4oz and was in hospital for the first six months of his life but he is ok now. The second friend had very high blood pressure at 7 months and had to have an emergency cesarean. The baby was 2lb 3oz and was fine after a few weeks but my friend ended up staying in hospital for about two months because she lost her eyesight at first and then her kidneys stopped working meaning she needed dialysis. Luckily they are all ok now but this condition can be very serious. This is not always the case if you do get preaclamcia as sometimes it can be kept under control until a later stage in pregnancy.
