Your Doctor seems to be watching you very closely. You are in the hospital so that any change in your status can be found immediately. This is good.
You are also 34 weeks. This is also good. If you needed to have your baby right away , it would be expected to do well. If delivery is delayed for 10 days or so, you may be able to take your baby home with you without it needing any or much time in the NICU. Usually, a doctor will decide to deliver if BP's become high or if the labs become more abnormal or if the baby is not doing well. Best wishes.
