    Hi All,

    I had my baby a week ago today. Since then my resting heart rate is mid 60s (usually mid 70s) and drops to 50 when I'm sleeping. I had high bp they were monitoring near the end of my pregnancy (usually around 138/87). Last night I took my bp and it was 166/97 and 158/90...has anyone else experienced this? Is this considered normal? I'm also having palpitations and am breastfeeding.
    I have had bouts of anxiety in the past and I'm sure worrying about this is not helping. I have an appointment next week to see my doc about it but don't want to worry until then.

    Please call your doctor soon as possible. This happened to me with my first pregnancy. I had developed postpartum preeclampsia. It required a magnesium drip and a longer hospital stay.
