If you had Pre-E or PIH

If you had Pre-ecalmpsia or PIH, what were your pressures when your doc decided to induce?

I had Pre-e after my son was born with pressures of 210/110 and was admitted back to the hospital after he was born and put on mag.

I have had borderline high pressures for 3 weeks now, averaging 140-145/90-95. Doc wanted me to call if my bottom number was over 95 and today it is 95-97...upper number is 145.

I need to be prepared that doc will want me to go to the hospital or come in, but also thinking maybe some rest and trying to get it down first, because I have an appt tomorrow morning....

Thanks for any input!!

If you have a appt in the morn I'd wait..but lay on your left side and drink water til you hate it. I had PIH with my last 2 and was induced with my last, I don't remember what my BP was at though.
The diastolic never got high for me though. I hope you make it full term without incident.
