I am 36 wks and 2 days along in my pregnancy. I went to the doc last week and was dignosed with High Blood pressure...and gained 6lbs in 12days. He sent me for all kinds of blood work and said this wednesday we will talk about possible options! Right now I am just on bed rest...which is really cramping me and my hubby for money. BUT...i did talk to mom and she said when she had high blood pressure...they induced her at 37wks...Any one go thru the same thing??Answer Question

There are some things you might try to better your health:
when i was pregnant with my son i got high blood pressure also andÂ i was put on bed rest. sadly i got my high blood pressure alot earlier then you did. but i also was going into pre-term laqbor, which caused me to have to be in the hospital on and off....i got put on bed rest at home at 24 weeks....no fun....it made it really hard because i had a toddler at the time too, well i got to stay on bed rest at home for about two weeks, then at about 27 weeks i got put into the hospital. thankfully my mom helped out with my daughter the whole time i was in there. i did not spend as much time in the hospital as i thought i would, i had toÂ be induced at 33 and a half weeks. which is strange because i went into pre-term labor to many times to count, but when they wanted me to go into labor my body did not want to...lol....stubborn baby...but he was six weeks early and weighted almost seven pounds!
