just wanted to chime in and say that this same thing happened to me. i had no protien no swelling, good nst's but high blood pressure (when i went in for my induction it was up to 1(some high number- probably 160 something)/117, can't remember the exact number but that bottom number freaked me out.
i was induced at 37w4d and my baby girl is perfectly healthy and fine, she was a little small- 6lbs 6oz, but had no problems with anything, was perfectly developed and we all went home the next day.
and the best part? i did it with NO pain meds. yeah, pitocin sucks. it hurt, but remember the ultimate reason behind the pain. to have a baby!
pm me if you need to talk or anything, but you will be fine. i was scared too, but high b.p. can progress into something more serious very fast. have faith mama, everything will be okay!
