I'm 38 weeks today and showing signs of preeclampsia. I have migraines with vision changes, protein in my urine, my bloodpressure has gone up a bit and my feet are so swollen that it hurts to walk.
On top of that, baby us measuring almost 8 pounds and I can hardly walk from all the pressure.
Yet she refuses to induce me.

You can always ask for a second opinion. It will be hard to find, but it's an option.

 Babys weight has nothing to do with you needing to be induced. What is your doc saying about your symptoms?

I was induced at 41.

Do YOU think you're showing signs of Pre-E, or does the doctor?

Lay down, raise your feet above your heart & wait it out.

Plenty of babies are delivered well over 8lbs, that is NOT a reason to be induced.

What are your signs of Preeclampsia?

If you really think you may have pre-e then I would maybe go to the hospital and have them check it out.
