I've been having high bp the last few days and had preeclampsia with my last two pregnancies. My platelet count has also been consistently dropping. Today I went in to my doctor appointment and bp was high (as it has been), so they sent me to labor and delivery to be monitored. Eventually in l&d I had three normal bps which hasn't happened in a while, and my platelet count actually went up. Maybe I won't end up with preeclampsia after all? Yay? 36 weeks.

I'm not understanding the question in your title.
That being said, I had preeclampsia and gestational diabetes with all 3 of mine.

One was allowed to go past her due date, only because my health insurance was being a little bitch, and the other 2 were "emergency" c-sectioned at 37+1 weeks and 37 weeks.

You eventually didn't have it in the end or?

I guess my question is if it looks like I won't end up with preeclampsia after all? Since my bp went back to normal while being monitored despite being high for a few days before, and platelets going back up?

Good luck, hope you and baby are both ok!!

Mine was very high one day then went to normal. The following week it had gone back up to the 140s so at my appointment, we decided to do my section at 37 weeks instead of the scheduled 38 weeks.
