Hello ladies. I know it's kind of too late to post into this tread, but I thought I will do it anyways. Maybe it would be helpfull for someone who searched and came across that tread. Here is my story. I gave a birth on June 10, 2011. Healthy baby girl 8 pounds and 9 ouces. My delivery date as June 12. My last appt with my ob was June 9, and she mentioned that my blood pressure was a little elevated. She sent me into the hospital. Over there they detected protein in my urine, and they they tout it was ok. Doctor was talking to the nurse he said I am fine and I can go home. Then he turned around and said how many weeks am I, I said 39. So he maid that worried look on his fais and said oh your in danger we are going to induce you labor. I was like I don't know what your going to do but I'm going home. He said I can die, or baby can, just a few min after he talked to nurse and said I'm Fine!!!!!!!!! What a bshhhh. So I came back into the hospital at 5 o'clock in the morning, I had those crazy contractions I could barely brief. My bp was 140/90 nurse said I'm in danger I have to lay down and I can't walk. After few hours of laying down she was convincing me to get an apidural shot, so I won't feel pain and my pd will go down. Ok I did. My husband was sooooo mad. 2 doses of epidural!!!! I was in pain. 20 min after my bp went up to 169. I felt absolutely everything and was able to move. Finally, nurse broke my water bag, because chances your water bag would break when you laying down pretty small. She broke and went away chill. My mom came to the hosp 30 min later and start yelling, why ta heck am I laying there with broken water bag. Nurse came over... She said I need to push my husband and my mom can hold my legs..... Hospital.... 27 min later baby came out. 10 min after I went by myself into the restroom. Point of my story is.... Do not believe to those freaking doctors, they looking at you like at bag full of money, and more they would make you struggle more money they will be able to get out of you. There is no female in the world who is going to be in labor with bp 120/80 no way. if your bp is elevated and you are 38 to 40 weeks prego and they detected protein in your urine that simply means you are going to be in labore any time soon. When you are in labor and doc bsng to you you can't walk ignore it you can. My mom is hypertonic her bp was sky height when she was in labor, she was walking around, running around I should said and she gave a birth to me and my br and sis, I was 9 pound. Healthy. And ladies please no epidural. Doct and nurses won't tell you but epidural won't work for everybody. And it has nothing to do with your bp. One more thing when they break your water bag, make sure you would start pushing with in 30 min, otherwise baby is still active inside and it has no water, cord would get around baby's neck, guess what's next doct will tell they would have to do a C section. MORE MONEY!!!! So in my case if my mom would came over and wouldn't start yelling at them probably nurse would came an hour later would make worried face call doctor, dc would somehow detect baby has a cord around and I, absolutely healthy person would end up having a C section. Cord was on my baby's neck but I guess it just got there when I was pushing, baby wants that bluish in color. God blessed us!!!! So be wise when you go to you ob app and especially when you in labor!!! Wish you all happy and heathy pregnancy and delivery.
