I went in today, not only did I gain about 5 pounds, but my BP was 176/100...I was thinking oh shooot...this is going to put me in the hospital! Hardly much mention, other than he is really hoping I make it another 2 weeks...Is he a moron, or is it just me?
What I would have expected from your doctor was to have you come back the next day and take your BP to see if it's a problem or just a one time deal. But yes, high BP is very important to address especially during pregnancy. If you are that close to delivering and your BP stayed high then I would expect your doctor to go ahead and make a decision to induce labor. Normally, Pregnancy Induced Hypertension resolves itself after you give birth.
