Baby birth sooner than EDD

User Profile
Just got back from the doctors. BP keeps going up each time I go Sad I have another appointment this Thursday (Apr. 3) for an ultrasound to check everything, plus another NST. Hubby was SO ready for them to take it today. So I'm doubting I'm gonna make it to my EDD, especially if my BP doesn't cooperate. I'm on bed rest, so I can't be on the computer for long Sad Wish me luck! I really need it right now Confused

Good luck & I second what Ingi said, definitely avoid salt. My blood pressure was high a few times when I was pregnant & as soon as I started watching my salt intake it went right back down to where it normally was.

Good luck. I hope everything goes well at your next appointment. When are you due again? There are so many ladies preggers around here, it's hard to keep everyone's dates straight.

Thank you ladies!

My due date is the 22nd, but my doc said if my BP, headaches and swelling don't go down, he's probably gonna induce me, which I don't mind at this point, lol. Baby's finally moving into my lung space, and it constantly feels like I ate something that stuck to my ribs...
