Postpartum preeclampsia and PPD
I came across your site today by accident( but after reading, I see not by accident at all). I am 1 year postpartum and in the process of weaning my baby. I developed mild preeclampsia during labor and ended up back at the hospital days later when my pressure went up. I have had a pretty rocky pp. Lots of emotions of anxiety and physical symptoms of lightheadedness, tingling and itching in my skin, heart palpatations and shortness of breath. My doctors just though this was a natural reaction to becoming a new mother but I knew in my heart it was not. I have just been dealing with it on my own with a good diet, acupuncture and some safe herbs. But after reading your site I feel this sense of relief because for the first time I feel validated in my feelings. I am greatful. But I am also a bit scared because as I am weaning my daughter there are about 3 days around ovulation that these symptoms are out of control. The rest of the month I feel them but I can manage. I just ordered the progesterone cream you sell but I am a but unsure of when and how much to use. Is it just from ovulation to the first day I bleed? Or should I use it everyday? I am about 6 days out from the beginning of my cycle.
I thank you for your site and information. And thank you for responding.
Blessings to you.
