In my last pregnancy I had severe pre-e at 33 weeks and delivered at 36. I had steroids at 33 and he only had hrs in nicu. I hated being on magnesium sulfate for so many reasons (slowwww induction, hallucination, loss of bonding time, difficulty or impossibility of initiating latch, a total of about 72 hrs in bed). With gestational diabetes And chronic hypertension the docs are just talking about inducing at 39 if no severe symptoms. My bps have been around 140/90-100 give or take the past couple weeks with one bad headache that resolved I am on 200 x 2 labatelol a day. I just feel that I might be able to avoid magnesium at 37-38 but will start spilling protein any longer and without steroids baby might not be as strong as my ds was at 36. I guess time will tell. Any input or advice?
