My due date is tomorrow. I had my 40 week appointment today. My BP was high, I'm really swollen, & have gained a lot of weight so they tested my urine: +1 protein. I was sent to L&D for a NST & blood work. My BP went down and was normal by the time I left, baby is fine, and all blood work came back fine. I have to do a 24 hour urine test. We will know more tomorrow after the results come back from the urine collection.
They are worried, obviously, about pre eclampsia. We are planning a natural birth center birth, but if we have pre e it is a no go.
My midwife checked my cervix just in case we have to induce. Nothing is happening in there. I am 40 weeks and nothing is happening in there! She said my cervix is a little soft but still long and closed.
Have any of you dealt with this and NOT had it be pre e? If you had to be induced before anything was happening in the lady nethers, how was that? If you did have pre e, how quickly did they want you induced?
Thanks for the insight.
