So excited for you making it to 37 weeks! I do know that I've had quite a few friends who had slightly elevated BP toward the end and nothing came of it, so that can happen.

I also know that my problems didn't really start until 37 weeks with BP of 130/90, no protein. (I had had protein at week 35 and 36 though with low BP) We induced at 38 weeks due to BP at 156/94-no protein. Then I had severe hypertension POST pregnancy.

So, as excited as I am for you to be this far along with no symptoms, PLEASE don't stop paying attention to your BP/symptoms all the way past delivery. (I know you'll do this anyway, but I felt I had to throw the reminder out there!)

Well, BP was highest it's been at the doc's office (134/84). OB says if it is high at the next appt (my last) on Tuesday, we will do the c-section next week. I'll be 38 weeks on Tuesday so I know all will be fine. But... I have a feeling my BP will be fine by then. One hour after my appt, I got a reading of 107/71. Craziness, I tell ya. It fluctuates so much.

I have to call in if it gets to 140/90 at home but so far, it's averaging 120/80.

Oh, and my swellling has actually gone down from last week. I lost one pound and protein was negative.

I really do not think I have pre-e at all and OB agrees but he's playing it safely. I still have a feeling I'll make it all the way to March 3rd. I know it sounds silly but I'd rather get to my final day. I guess then I feel like I really succeeded.

I just keep wondering if it's very normal to have slightly elevated BP this close to the end. It seems so popular.
