That's typical, but great news that everything was OK. Good luck with your next appointment on Monday

Hope you’re doing okay, I have blood pressure issues as well. Very frustrating.

I had gestational hypertension last pregnancy... They ended up inducing at 37 weeks. I don't think mine crept up until around 32-34 weeks though. They have me on baby aspirin now to hopefully keep it down.

I've read some about baby aspirin. Hopefully, I can remember to ask at my appt tomorrow if its appropriate in my case.

I'm hoping to make it to 37 weeks. Hopefully my bp cooperates.

Hey, with my son my BP got nearly that high and I was on bedrest from 36 to 38 weeks, and then I was induced.

Drink tons of water, lay on your left side as much as you can......

This pregnancy I'm on baby aspirin but I was on it with my son as well.....the additional thing is I'm on Labetalol, a bp medicine, already. But I totally feel you and know the stress.

Hang in there!

Have they suggested a 24 hour urine ? I had to do that with my son and it's really nasty lol (collecting all your wee in a jug) but it's the best way to see if you are getting protein and nearing pre-e or not.

Thanks Allie. I finished a 24 hour urine this morning. So so gross!

My bp was high but acceptable today during my appointment. I had a nst and fluid check and both were good.

The doctor I saw today said induction likely around 37 weeks. Its so hard to believe.

Yea...

It's so hard with a 3 year old. Plus it is just my nature to do and I feel ao useless right now.

It will be worth it!! Even if it means lots of screen time for your LO, it's just for a few weeks.

I didn't have a kid yet when I was on bed rest but I had a routine....morning in bed, then a really long bath, then moved to the couch for the day, planned some things to do, then back to bed.....maybe another bath haha. A few times I cheated and went for a ride with DH but just stayed in the car (like while he took the dog to the dog park and I watched from car haha).

Did you get the results of your 24 hour urine?
