I ment slightly raised bp.
I'd your urine tests high for protein the could diagnosis you with pre-eclampsia. And sometimes they induce because of it.
What was ur top number I have hypertension but have not had protein in urine just take meds u may just need meds if it is not to bad usually pre-eclampsia is like 200 over 100 it would be really high
I dont remember what the top number was. 139 i think. Somewhere around that.
Pre-eclampsia is a combination of protein in urine (above a certain amount) and elevated blood pressure. My cousin had protein in her urine but her 24 hour collection was normal.
Thank you MSmith2012 that calms me down a little. Im just hoping for everything to continue smoothly.
I'm a labor nurse and given the fact that you are 37.2 you are very close and your baby will do just fine however if your pressure continues to be elevated and and your 24 hour urine comes back high it will all depend on how high for each of those. It's is a risk vs benefit thing. It's better to deliver sooner if you are developing pre-eclampsia however if it doesn't continue to increase its safe to stay pregnant. Your urine may come back totally fine since it's a much more specific test then just a urine sample and your pressure might have just been elevated that one instance. Where I work we don't like pressures to be over 160/100.
Ok. Thank you. so only time will tell and just try to relax. thank you:) ftm here.
