We are inducing tonight! My office bp was 148/98 on meds, and she still wanted me to wait another week. I said no. I have high bp and a history and I'm not waiting for me or baby to take a bad turn. She said the hospital pushes back on early inductions and I feel for her, but this one is medically indicated.
So I'm on the hospital schedule for tonight! She stripped my membranes, ow, but maybe that will help. Doing pitocin. Eep.
DS born Dec. 2008 at 38.5w gestation. Mild PE diagnosed 3 hours before he was born
DD born Dec. 2010 at 40w1d. BP was slightly elevated since 37w, and climbed while in labor (started on my own). Severe PE diagnosed hours after DD born.
DD born Sept. 2013 at 38w. Induced (and I had to fight for it!) due to high blood pressure. No protein, but had brisk reflexes and clonus after delivery. Doc gave me a mild preeclampsia diagnosis anyway and said I'm likely to be a chronic hypertensive later in life.
