preeclampsia paranoia

This is my first time pregnant. My doctor says I'm 37 weeks as of this just past Thursday, I had an apt with him and my son's heart rate was close to 200 and my blood pressure was up (as they say "borderline"). So I was sent for an NST (nonstress test). The doctor sent me home after but had to go back on Friday for a blood pressure check; my son's heart rate was up again and so was my blood pressure. So, again, went for another NST and got sent home again. Has this happened to anyone else and what was the outcome? I go back for my weekly apt on Monday; what's the chance of induction or emergency c-section?

I was induced at 39 weeks with my first due to pre e. I went in Tuesday night and ended with a c section Thursday evening. I didnt want a c section but my labor stopped progressing. As far as recovery, for me I only had a glue type stuff, no staples. And I was up and walking around that same night. The nurses were amazed. I also left the hospital not needing pain meds. So if you happen to need a c section, its not horrible. And you ARE NOT required to have a c section with your future pregnancies.

I never had any problems with my blood pressure. Wednesday was the first sign of it. I'm anxious that the doctor is going to say that I'm going to be having him that day.

I'm didn't either til right at the end, and had protein in my urine.

What happened to me was, I had my regular appointment, she sent me to the hospital for a NST, then decided I could go home pack, go out for dinner and come back that night to be induced.

I also had to do a 24 hour urine which came back with protein in my urine. What does that mean?

Its also a sign of pre e. When was this? How far along are you now?

I'm thinking your Dr will most likely want you induced after your next appointment.

Doctor says I'm 37 weeks and 2 days as of today. I found out about the protein in my urine yesterday afternoon.

He might be waiting until your 38 week mark to be safer. But I'd definitely have your hospital bag packed and everything in order before your next appointment just incase:)

Have they tested your urine for protine? Pree E is a mix... high BP, protine in your urine, and swelling.
