24 hour urine, high bp, and bedrest

I thought at this point in my pregnancy I'd avoided bedrest but nope. Here I am at 37 weeks 4 days along and got put on bedrest yesterday. My bp was high so I was sent to l&d where it got as high as 161/97! My urine showed some protein in it so now I'm doing a 24 hour urine collection. I was told if that comes back high I will be having a baby today. I bring it in at 3pm and go from there. I'm so scared. I know he's term but I'm still nervous. I hate the unknown!

If you've done the 24 hour urine is there a level they want it under? What about with the regular urine test? And any idea how long it takes to get results back from the 24 hour test? Anything else I need to know?

Mine was 301 with Bella. I was told anything over 300 required an induction.
