Post subject: stuck in hospital.......
I had my baby a week ago yesterday.....i was in for 11 days in total before and after birth. I was discharged on monday and after a home visit on wednesday from my midwife got sent back in with high bp. Ive been here since......i was going home today but the bp decided to throw a wobbly again so now they wont let me home.
I feel so depressed. I miss my family so much. I had to have general anesthetic when i had my daughter and had so much help from everyone so i wouldnt go down the pnd route again & now i feel like im slipping that way. Ive been nothing but ill & starting to resent my daughter feeling like if i had never got pregnant id of not been so ill & not stuck here !!! My husband has taken loads of time off work to look after our other daughter & im not used to seeing them both so little i feel like things can't get any worse and never been so depressed

Aww sweetie I can only imagine how you are feeling but you need to get yourself well and your bp will stay high if your stressing.. I hope you get home to your family soon remember to keep talking to people around you and that they are aware of how your feeling x

That must be tough but you need to think positive - is your baby healthy? You will be healthy soon then you can go home, it won't be long!! I was stuck in hospital for 5 weeks with my daughter because she had to had heart surgery so we didn't get to come home until 5 weeks.
Hope that helps

Thanks ladies i was discharged yesterday and had a bp check t home this morning and it was fine. I should think so with all the meds they have sent me home with. I have another check in 2 days time so fingers crossed things are starting to get back to normal.
Thanks for all your well wishes xx
