I had my son on March 28th and a few days later my BP went up to 142/92 well my doctor didn't seem super concerned and told me just to rest. I've been resting as much as possible with a newborn and a 4 year old lol. Well I checked my BP today with a home monitor and it's down to 138/78. My question is, if you had this problem how long did it take yours to level back out? Should I contact my doctor or not since it's starting to go back down? I'm trying not to worry so I don't make it go back up! Last week I had bad headaches and now they're mild ones.
I had gestational hypertension. Blood pressure was high the last two months or so of my pregnancy. It went back to normal by my 8 week follow-up. Typically, it will go down by two months, so if it's still high by then or if it goes up to really high levels, then I would call for an appointment.
