I just got a call from the midwives.

I've been having some swelling, etc, so they had me do a 24 hour urine last week and some bloodwork.

Bloodwork is ok, but protein is elevated to 279 (cutoff is 250).

May be heading towards PIH/Pre-E, except that my BPs have been fine so far (well, ok, I havent checked since last week, but they WERE fine).

at my appointment tomorrow, now we have to "discuss options"

Aw, nuts! I hope There is at least one option you can live with (if I have to be chemically induced, my midwives will try to start labor with pit, get contractions going, then turn off the pit to see if labor progresses on it's own. Maybe you could do something like that?).
