I had a similar experience with my first pregnancy. I had protein first, though, and then the blood pressure crept up to match. Since my bloodwork came back normal or borderline, they simply sent me home for strict bedrest until I reached 37 weeks. I had NSTs (non-stress tests) twice a week to make sure the baby stayed healthy while we gave him time for his lungs to mature, and several more blood draws to make sure I stayed healthy enough to continue pregnancy until he was ready.
I had a successful induction at 37 weeks, 1 day and was fully recovered by my 6 weeks postpartum appointment.
1st son, induced at 37 weeks due to pre-e, born 6/18/10.
2nd son, c-section at 37 weeks due to hypertension, born 1/15/13.
