40 weeks and Pre-E question Soon 2B Mom of 2 2 kids; North Highlands, California 3785 posts

Has anyone had Pre-E and went past 40 weeks?
I am 39 weeks, and I was just wondering what my chances are of them letting me go that far. Everyone I know who has had it was induced at 39 weeks, and I would really rather go on my own if I can. I know I can refuse induction, but in this case I would be to scared to. I go see my doc in a couple hours, but I wanted some insight before I go in. TIA.

Normally I'd be all for refusing induction but with you having pre-e it's best to go with what the dr says.

if you go to Capitol obgyn i doubt they will let you, but other drs may. i know dr bob pushes induction and c.sections frequently for it. Good luck :)

2 of my friends had it. One went in at 36 the other at 37. It's not something they take very lightly whatsoever. The bright side of it all your bundle of joy is here just a few weeks early :) good luck!!! Hope all goes well with whatever happens.

Well damn. I do go to Capital lol. I see Dr. Melchoine today. He delivered DS, and I really like him, so I will go with his judgment. I just found out I have Pre-E at 38 weeks, and have been monitored twice since then. The last time I went my BP was good, and there was no protine in my urine. I have only been drinking water, and trying to eat really really healthy, so I guess I was just hoping if everything was good today I could try to go on my own.

You are not very educated on pre-e are you?

That's what I was thinking. Not even trying to be rude about that either.

Wow I guess that I am not going to give my hopes up. I was 26 weeks with my first baby and lost him due to sever pre e. I asked my doc if there was any way we could a vaginal birth this time and she just kinda giggled and said let's try to make it to 39 weeks. But seeing all these post I guess I'm not going to get that v-back. :( It's a bummer but I will do what ever I have to to have a healthy baby.
