Just wondering what the doctors will do if i constantly have high bloodpressure.

@32wks they took it 3times on diff machines and it was high
@34wks it was normal
and@36wks its high again.

they want me back 2moro at 37wks +2days. to see if its high again. and the doctor said "she will see what she will do from there". I ddnt ask her what she meant by this and now i regret it.

Ive had a very normal pregnancy,so sickness at all, and no complications apart from now having highbloodpressure.

what do you think they will do. induce me? or c=section? Opinions would be greatly appreciated. thanks

My blood pressure started to get high around 37 weeks with my first. at 39 wks 4 days it was still high so they induced me. Good luck!

My blood pressure was high through out my whole pregnancy and they induced me because of it. it was 180/107, and they were going to do a c-section if it got any higher. thankfully it went down with t he medicine they gave me and I had a vaginal delivery. :)

Mine got high in second trimester so we started with diet change, then medicine and then at 38 weeks 1 day when I was 180/102 I was sent to the hospital to be induced. The induction failed... miserably so it ended up in a c section

I was induced just before 38 weeks with my first, but I had many of the warning sings of pre-e and we didn't want to take any chances.

With my second, I would have been induced, likely within the week but he was born at 38 weeks, 2 days. I did not have any other warning signs, just high blood pressure. But I had to give birth at the hospital (my midwives were more comfortable there because of my blood pressure then at home like we had planned).
