I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I've been on labetalol for a few weeks prior to giving birth and it was keeping my BP stable at 120/80. Had the baby 5 days ago and it's starting to creep up. It was 165/90 when the midwife took it today :-( Has anyone else had this? I'm just wondering what they'll do- maybe increase meds or something? Just hoping it won't mean going back to hospital or anything. I'm sure it's probably related to not getting enough sleep but that problem won't solve itself very easily lol. x
