Oh wow, I don't know... How far along is she? I'd be hesitant to allow an induction unless my blood pressure was a danger to me or baby...

It's hard to say without knowing more , how high is the BP , has it been a problem or is this new , how far along is she ect ?

I mean if it's not way high could they simply keep a close eye on things and give her as much time as they can safely to manage it , or turn baby or just bake a lil more ?

How far along is she , would the high BP be worse on the baby then this early of a delivery ? Also if she's further along how likely is her body going to agree with induction ?

And just how are they thinking of inducing ?

That's a tough situation for sure !

my thoughts were exactly what you ladies are saying...
how far along is she?
how long has the high blood pressure been going on?

i said if it is the first incident then just go home and take a bath and relax. and i asked if they did any further tests to see what it could be from...i said it could always just be a fluke as well, time and day could have just been crappy for her and it could be fine in an hour.
