38 Week Appointment: high blood presure. Labor Induction ?

User Profile
I had my 38 week appointment yesterday and my BP was high (again). So doc ordered blood tests and 24 hour urine (again). That stinks!
Now I have to wait for them to call me with the blood test results while I pee in a jug all day.
~Yipee!~

Today at the NST my BP was normal.

The doc said he might induce me, but now my BP is normal, I really don't know what is going to happen. I just don't know what's going on, I feel kinda lost.

Sorry I just need to let it out. I feel better already!

I had been waiting for them to call on my blood test results, and I checked voice mail today, and a doc called and told me to call tomorrow. I will post what happens. Wish me luck!1

Good luck! I hope all goes well for you. That's been my worst fear of this pregnancy. High BP. Although mine has been good so far. I didn't have it with my first, but i am a bit more heavier than i was at 17 too.
