In my opinion (and I'm not medical) a headache, heartburn and blurred vision are causes for concern. My only warnings when I had eclampsia was headache and heartburn so if I have any signs of these two at any time, I'm getting on the horn to my peri to have some tests run.

You should ask them to do a 24 hour urine, you should mention your heartburn and your seeing spots. Use those words. I had it with my first--fine with my second--very dangerous at 38 weeks with my third and very similar to you--just barely hypertensive and a trace of protein...not enough to get excited about. Do me a favor and push for further testing--and be SURE to mention the spots. At this point, inducing might be a good option.

It would be my personal (non-medical) bias.

Hi im 38wks pregnant and today my bp was 134/98 at the drs office, I have no protien in my urine, but have headaches and alittle spotty vision, also, major heartburn. They did labs on me today, which showed my creaton? for kidneys was slightly elevated? Are these signs of concern? I have had pree with my first child this is my third? Would love some advice. Erika
