Being induced tomorrow.. meowarina Due October 11 (boy); 2 posts

I have a fairly common problem, I think, an sort of a two part question. I had been diagnosed with preeclampsia and am being induced Saturday at 37 weeks (first baby) - what's the best thing to eat for breakfast that won't interact with any of the drugs?



My second concern is that I have a brain cyst in my right temple, and I had initially told my doctor about it, but since finding out I had preeclampsia, she hasn't voiced anything further. They told me that you can get headaches due to increased blood pressure in the brain, and my mother is worried it could lead to a rupture- should I be worried?

I don't think that anyone on here is qualified to answer the 2nd question. I'd talk to a doctor.
When I was induced I ate fruity pebbles for breakfast because I wanted something that tasted good if I happened to throw up.
Good luck tomorrow!!!

I understand, you just never know if other people have gone through the same thing you might be, or not.



Thanks, I hear induction can be a crappy process, especially with extra preeclampsia drugs, but I'm excited.

No answer for the second question, sorry.



Buttttt, when I was being induced with my first, I ate McDonald's lol, my midwife was like 'should you be eating that' my reply? 'Uh yeah, why not' aha.



Good luck! :)

You can eat whatever you'd like, but I suggest trying something very light, just in case the medications make you sick and you have to throw it all back up.
