Update on blood pressure Deidria Lee 1 child; Buckhannon, West Virginia 68 posts

Ok so my blood pressure has been doing pretty good but still goes up at times. My doctor is still giving me a chance to go into labor on my own which I appreciate but she told me today that she may not let me go past monday. I've had 2 ultrasounds this past week and everything comes out good and all my labs have been good also. The only thing that worries me is I've been dilated to 1 cm for over a month and still no change but they say my cervix is softer. Hoping everything works out because I'm not really wanting to be induced. Anybody else gone through something similar to this and everything work out good? Thanks!

How high does it get? With my past pregnancy my bp would stay around 140-150/80s. Never mentioned induction. Its running about the same this time, too.

The highest I've seen it get lately was like 160-170/100-110. But it has been better.

Are either of you on BP meds? Sorry to butt in, but my BP has been up to 145/78ish a couple times (only at the Dr.) and they put me on BP meds and want NST 2x a week starting at 32 weeks and will induce at 39 weeks. I think all of this is way overkill as my BP was high only a couple times, just don't know how to tell my Dr. all this!

Not on meds. My bp was fine the whole pregnancy until I hit 39 weeks.

Yeah they tried inducing once. They gave me cytotec but all it did was give me contractions.
