    Hi, Casey. Your lodge is moving right along! As you know, I too am a Sept. 06 poster; I post there less and less these days...mostly I post just to wish people good luck and give congrats on the new, beautiful babies being born. I can't relate to a lot of the posts. I guess we each need to find the place that is most comfortable for us.

    How is your ankle? Better, I hope. Keep up that positive attitude, but know that you are welcome to post about all your feelings here...these ladies are awesome! Take care.

    Congrats on your lodge Casey! Another Sept board member here as well....I love this board! I hope your swelling goes down. My ankles look like tree trunks, so I really can't wait to have this baby so mine will go down. Lisa's suggestion of elevating has been the only thing that works for me.

    I get it at the drug store - you definitely don't have to go to a specialty store for it. And it's cheap - you can get a pretty large container for just a couple of bucks

    Hi Casey, I too left the September board a while ago. I went back to read some posts a few days ago and realized that I am content not posting there. I do read the birth stories at the top every now and then to catch up on who has/hasn't had their babies though. Wishing you all the best in your final part of this journey!

    Hi, Casey. Just wanted to see how the NST went and if your ankle/s is/are better. Thinking of you.

    I think the plan your doctor is using is probably used more often than you're finding. Its a more conservative approach, and so many women wouldn't want to take such a less-certain approach. If they're going to induce, they want to KNOW its going to happen right then. I woudln't be OVERLY concerned about the BP. How high is it? Elevated BP isn't great, but how high it is makes a difference, as do other pre-e symptoms.
    In other words, in your shoes, I'd be very much okay with your doctor's plans. (assuming your BP isn't just through the roof, then I might want to speed things up a bit)
    Also, a "natural" induction IS possible! We've had some ladies here who had full on pitocin inductions for medical reasons, and did it as gently as possible, with no pain meds. It can be done!

    Is there anything you can do to help lower your BP? Don't they say put your feet up, lie down, drink water, etc? If there was a way to lower your BP then you could avoid all of this. It does sound like your doctor is taking a gentle approach to do what he thinks is best. It sounds like you trust your doctor and have a good relationship with him. That goes a very long way when trying to decide what to do.
