Just wanted to update that my doctor, somewhat to my surprise, said he would be ok going to 41 weeks if everything stays under control.
I do have weekly appointments and NSTs, probably similar to most of you. Also, my meds haven't been adjusted at all yet. I don't know what difference that makes.
First pregnancy, due September 2012. Chronic hypertension, no signs of PE yet...fingers crossed!
