Hi ladies, I am on meds for HBP, and its been good since i started them, until yesterday at my 39wk appt. it was high again. I have to go back tomorrow for another check because I'm due on Tuesday...is it likely they will induce me earlier rather than let me go overdue because of this? Not to sure...just wondering if anyone has heard of that. Thanks :)

I've had hbp since 37 weeks and my due date is Sunday the 28th, and my doctor said she won't let me go past the 30th because of that. I've also had protein in my urine -not enough to be serious, but enough that they're not letting me go past my due date by more than a couple days. Are you doing NST also? I get them every 3 or 4 days. So, I would say it's very likely you'll get induced. Are you dilated yet? I'm not, which is why they keep pushing an induction back, but at least I know by Tuesday they'll start it.

Hmm, I haven't had any NST's yet. Not to mention I haven't been checked for dialation yet either! I'm due on Tuesday, so I'm hoping that sometime very very shortly after that I'll be delivering. Good luck to you :)

Hey Ladies, me too, I have high bp, my bloodwork showed uric acid very close to the inductin cutoff. They told me yesterday that I won't make it to my due date but would like me to get to 39 wks if possible. I guess the uric acid is an indicator of kidney and renal problems for me. Chrissi any info on bloodwork? My doc said my bp will determine when I have the baby but if I make it to my 38 wk appt (next wednesday) then we will set up induction date.

Kim, no blood work that says anything like that. I haven't had blood work done in a while though...but no kidney/renal probs to mention. I am due on tuesday so we'll see what they say b/c again today my BP was still high, so I have to go in again on Monday to check it, and I will ask about induction then. Good luck to you though, and hopefully you stick it out until 39wks :)
