My results are back: 352. My obgyn wants to see me tomorrow morning, so that's reassuring.

Re: Preeclampsia at 38w... ok to wait one more week?

Thanks! I'll keep monitoring my blood pressure (133/77 right now, so it's good), and I should have the results of the 24h urinalysis tomorrow. So, what I would expect is that they would move the c-section to this week if the 24h is high. Is there a particular threshold I should expect the obgyn to r...
