BP Probs Again..haihhh

Just came back from maternity check up (35 weeks) at An Nur. As usual, my BP always at the border line. 139/87 okehh. Almost nk kene admit ward. Ahh...tidaaaakkkk!! I dont know what else to do with my BP nih. Pasrah & redha sajelah. There are few things Dr. F highlighted abt my pregnancy & its kinda scared me a bit. Lagi2 bile dgr perkataan 'induce'. Means aku maybe akn dipaksa bersalin lebih awal dr EDD due to this high BP la kann..ape lagi. So the next check up which is in 2 weeks time (week 37), if my BP still high, maybe kene induce dh la. Dr. F ckp x blh tggu smpi week 40 if I still have the same problem. It will be too risky for me & the baby. Apo laie nk di kato? Tuelah kompiden sgt bile org tnya bile bersalin, ckp bln 2. Hahh..klu ini mcm la gayenyer, mmg bln 2 la aku dipaksa bersalin. Amek ko. Pdn muke aku..wawawa...*ketawa dlm tangisan*

Org kate induce nie lebih sakit dr bersalin normal yg rase sakitnya dtg semulajadi. Mcm opis mate aku lah last year bersalin smpi dah overdue. Last2 kene induce & dia sgtlah fobia nk bersalin lagi. Adakah aku akn merasai pengalaman yg sama?*Tidaaaakkkk*. Aku xtau nk expect ape lps2 nie. Mmg sgt2 pasrah la senang ckp. Sakit itu sudah pasti. Aku hrp diberi kesabaran & kekuatan utk melalui saat2 itu nnti. Aku nk bersalin normal...taknak la kene c-zer.*Waaa....* Aku pk2 benda nie lagilah tambah tekanan kann? Xpe, at least aku dpt luah perasaan kt sini, lega sket. Kann??kannn??? :p Dan moga kwn2 dptla doakan yg terbaik utk aku & baby. Manelah tau berkat doa korang2, aku dpt bersalin dgn rasa sakit bersalin yg normal & scr normal. Insyallah. Be +ve. Gambate!!!

Enough of that creepy story, td sempat singgah kedai brg2 bb b4 balik opis. Takde beli ape2 pn. Saje ushar playpen & nmpk mcm ade yg suit with our budget & yg paling penting xla huduh rupa bentuknye :p Tp duit x kuar lg dr bank td, so postpone la nk beli. Nti dh beli klu rajin, aku tampal gambonye kt sini. Klu rajin laa...hua hua. Below ade sket info ttg induce labour. Dh nk kene amek tau la sikit sbnyk ttg prosedur nie.*tsk tsk*

What does it mean to induce labor?

If your labor doesn't start on its own, your practitioner can use medication and other techniques to bring on (or induce) contractions. She can use some of the same methods to augment, or speed up, your labor if it stops progressing for some reason. In 2006, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 1 in 5 births in the United States was induced. This rate more than doubled from 1990.

Why would my labor be induced?

Your practitioner will recommend induction when the risks of waiting for labor to start on its own are higher than the risks of the procedures used to get your labor going. This may be the case when:

• You're still pregnant one to two weeks past your due date. Experts advise waiting no longer than that to give birth because it puts you and your baby at greater risk for a host of problems. For example, the placenta may become less effective at delivering nutrients to your baby, increasing the risk of a stillbirth or serious problems for your newborn.

In addition, if your baby gets too big, your labor is more likely to be prolonged or stalled, your chances of needing a c-section are higher, and both you and your baby have an increased risk of injury during a vaginal delivery.

• Your water breaks and your labor doesn't start on its own. In this case, you'll be induced to decrease the risk of infection to your uterus and your baby, which is more of a concern once your membranes have ruptured. (However, if your baby is still very premature, your practitioner may hold off on inducing labor.)

• Tests show that your placenta is no longer functioning properly, you have too little amniotic fluid, or your baby isn't thriving or growing as he should.

• You develop preeclampsia, a serious condition that can endanger your health and restrict the flow of blood to your baby.

You have a chronic or acute illness – such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or kidney disease – that threatens your health or the health of your baby.

• You've previously had a full-term stillbirth.
