It depends on your protein levels and what your BP is. You will be monitored fairly closely from this point on, but that might be all that's needed.

They could induce depending on what the 24 hour shows. THey are checking for signs of pre e. Are you having any symptoms of pre e?

my bp was 129/93 so it might be to early for me to have him ?

Yeah that's on the high side. I wouldn't worry at this point, it won't do anything for your BP. 36 weeks isn't full term but it's not super early so chances are higher baby will be just fine :)

Well, your systolic pressure is not bad, but the diastolic is definitely on the higher side. I don't think 36 weeks is terribly early. I know it's good to keep them in as long as possible, but your health is taken into consideration as well. I had two of my three before 36 weeks. Not ideal, but they didn't have any issues except being a little small(6 lbs 5 oz at 35 w 5 days, and 6 lbs 0 oz at 35w 0 days). I hope your baby is as well developed should you need to be induced this early.
