Dear jamana71264,

This is not normal and should be checked out immediately. Try to talk to the physician on call over the weekends for your doctor or go to an urgent care facility, because climbing blood pressure like yours can have serious consequences.

Write back and let us know how you're doing,

Byroney

P.S. Congratulations on the newborn!
