We only use cell phones all the time ;), but I can understand the nerves there. Congratulations on making to your induction! That's great! I can't wait to read your update, and I hope everything goes smoothly with Amelia's (*love* the name, btw) arrival!

So I have been given an induction date of this Tuesday. This is my first so of course I am a little nervous.

We managed to not develop into superimposed pre-e due to chronic hypertension. I've been on some sort of bedrest since the end of April but it seemed to help the blood pressure.

At home my BPs have been raised in the last week (but not reflected at the office but I don't trust the nurses anymore at my office.....readings at home high (and use my husband as a test case his read normal)) so I am glad we will be meeting Amelia on Tuesday (or earlier if she has other ideas!). Protein has never gotten to a danger zone.

Thanks to all of the advice that everyone has given me. I look forward to reporting to you next week (or probably not until the following week....we moved into a new home and Verizon is giving us the run around so we are borrowing my husband's work internet access at night!!!!! Nerve racking being a high risk pregnancy with no phone other than cell phones!)
