I literally don't understand how none of my chronic conditions didn't bother me my entire pregnancy. baby is 5 1/2 months old now and I have at least 2 seizures and 2 POTS episodes a day. I think I'm just defective.

      So I asked my mom (healthcare professional and has POTS) During pregnancy, you have way more blood than you normally do in your body, so when you have your baby your blood levels drop down to normal, hence the symptoms.

      I don’t have any experience with that myself, but my mom had the same thing happen. She felt AMAZING while pregnant with me but after I was born she went downhill very quickly. Sorry I can’t explain why, but my moms POTS did the same so you can be defective together lol.

        @Loblolly I'm glad I'm not the only one 🤣
