Postpartum toxemia?

I delivered my daughter last Monday, the 11 th. Ive been having awful headaches everydayou, lasting all day for the last few days. I called to make a dr appt for tomorrow and the nurse told me I needed to go get my blood pressure checked before she felt comfortable waiting until tomorrow. I went, it was 139/97 which iso extremely high for me. Its never been above 120/70. I was told to go to the ER ( where I am waiting now) and she mentioned post partum toxemia. Does anyone know anything about this?

  • My best friend experinced this with three of her kids. A few days after giving birth she would have to be admitted to the hospital for several days. Hope all goes well. Congrats on your baby!
