I am almost 35 weeks and my blood pressure just shot up at my last appointment on thursday. I had to the 24 hr urine test friday and spent saturday at L&D for more testing/monitoring. I have no protein in my urine so the diagnosis was gestational hypertension aka pregnancy induced high blood pressure.
The doctor said be prepared to be induced sometime in the next 4 weeks. You will not go beyond 39 weeks and at every doc visit or non stress test (will start next week) you could be send immediately to L&D for an induction or bedrest if bp is too high.
I am shocked, upset, stressed about having a pre-term baby, nicu time, having it mess up breastfeeding.
Has this happened to anyone? How many weeks did you make it? Any advice?
