I had my prenatal today (they have me at 39 weeks on sunday... but i'm 99% sure i'm 38 weeks tomorrow) my blood pressure has been elevated the last two weeks in a row and (the bottom number was 15-20 higher than my starting bp) and they are getting really uncomfortable with it. they asked me to take my blood pressure throughout the week and if it doesn't go down they want to talk about ways to start my labor.. i asked what their typical protocol would be for that and they said a membrane sweep followed by walking and then eat a pasta dinner and they had a "recipe" for me to make that would include castor oil. I don't really have a problem with the membrane sweep becuase I really don't think it would put me in to labor unless i was going to go in to labor any way.. but i've heard some really negative things about castor oil.. I'm not really sure if i should decline it though because if my bp gets higher and they send me to an OB i will likely end up with a hospital induction and I REALLY don't want that.
what do you ladies think?
also i have no other preeclampsia symptoms at all if that makes a difference
