I'm 39 wks and at my drs appt today I had high blood pressure (after eating a Mc D's cheeseburger, fries and sweet tea--I know). I told him what I had eaten and let him know that it's not usually in my diet, but he said that if that caused my blood pressure to spike that other things may have too. He asked that I go in for fetal monitoring on Monday, and he may ask me to stay and induce. I show no signs of labor (effacement/dilation) and my blood pressure has been perfect until now. I cant remember what it was today (blurr once the dr started acting concerned) but I remember thinking that it was within 10 of what it was last time, 122/82. What are my chances of cesarean with no signs of labor? Effects of high blood pressure on baby? anybody ever have this test? Advice? Your experience? What questions should I have for Dr?
