i'm 35 plus weeks now and my bp's are starting to inch up a bit.....getting late 130's-140's over 80's-90's now.....

got growth scan ultrasound and clinic 2morrow.....so depending on what the reading is on their bp machines i will be kept on and warded at hospital or safe to go home and return next week....

depending on what happens, me or my sis gonna log in and update.....
but i am so bless to have made it to 35 weeks...baby measured 3-4 lbs and 2 weeks ahead at 32 weeks growth scan ...so by now she should be more than 4 lbs ....and so i trusting GOD for a safe delivery and healthy baby girl should they decide to induce....

So glad you're doing well! I'm in the same boat. 36 weeks now and BPs highish (140/90 pretty regularly), but not super high. I had some protein about six weeks ago and did a 24 hour. I was about 250, so under the 300 threshold. Since then, my dip sticks have been clean at regularly appointment.

I'm also measuring a little ahead, which just floors me. Feeling so blessed! I feel like no matter what happens now, we're in the safe zone for a smooth landing. Good luck. We're almost there!

Woohoo!!

I, too, was on methyldopa for my pregnancies (one was in the US and the other was in Germany).

Sounds like you and baby are doing well - hang in there! And keep us posted!!!
