Hey hun, I had protein and high blood pressure with my first also bad swelling when I c midwife at 40wks, I had high blood pressure through the end of the pregnancy anyway, but when I had the protein aswell I was admitted to hospital, that night I went into labour and had him the next day! I've never had a birth plan letter and was admitted several times with my first for various things. My friend had pre eclampsia with her first she had headaches, blurred vision, high blood pressure and swollen hands and feet, also protein. Have u had tests for pre eclampsia? They gave me blood tests couple of times to check with my first and they came back fine xx

Hi Haleigh, From my experience, that close to the end of your pregnancy they prefer to keep you in and induce you if you are not well (even only a little bit ill) it lets them keep an eye on you and they are in control of when you come in etc.
My one bit of advice would be that when you go to the hospital be prepared that they might keep you in, don't do what I did and drive there in the family car with no hospital stuff and no way to get anything because you have the car and they won't let you out!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds funny now but not so funny at the time.
GOOD LUCK X X X
