I do not post often but I find bub hub an amazing resource of information.
I am after some advice.
I am 38 weeks pregnant today. 1 week ago, my blood pressure rocketed at a midwife appointment so I got admitted to hospital overnight. I have no other PE symptoms, except from my uric acid being slightly high. Levels of protein in my urine vary (1-3).
I got put on medication while at the hospital and they kept my BP down. I got discharged on Tuesday. Had monitoring on Friday and everything was fine.
Yesterday I saw a doctor at the clinic (I am normally followed by midwives at the birth centre) and although my BP is still down, he asked me to come back for monitoring on Friday and said that we will then most likely book for induction.
Now if my BP is under control and I continue to show no other signs of PE, why induce?
He told me that was because BP is unpredictable and could creep up without warning.
I am thinking of pushing back and ask to wait for at least my due date before talking induction.
Am I taking risks by doing this? Is there something I don't see?
Anyone else had been induced due to high BP only controlled by meds?
