In brief: See an Obstetrician

If you had a seizure during late pregnancy you most likely have preeclampsia which can be a serious complication.
You need your blood pressure checked and urine protein measured. Don't mess around, see an obstetrician today! If you've never had a seizure before then it's likely this seizure is pregnancy related. If you cant find an OB, go back to ED and ask the doc to consult the OB on call.
