Q&A: What dangers are there with high blood pressure during 34th week of pregnancy?

Question by wonderbread: What dangers are there with high blood pressure during 34th week of pregnancy?
I’ve been put on bedrest because I have high blood pressure. I’m 34 weeks PG and I’m a little concerned as to what can be brought on by this.

Could I get toxemia or pre-eclampsia this late in pregnancy from high blood pressure?

Could I go into premature labor and what else could happen?

Thanks.

Pre-mature labor is the biggest risk, that is why you are on bed rest. So don’t think you are fine and do things you’re not supposed to . You really need to ask your Dr. these things, that’s what s/he is there for. Don’t worry about calling, just do it. Get some papaer and write down ALL your questions. Then ask your Dr. every one, no matter how stupid you think it is later. Stay rested, and find ways to reduce stress and keep eating healthy food. Fruit can help any sugar cravings you have and it’s much better for you than ice cream or candy. Stay well and listen to your Dr., get help from family at home if you can. You need this time to rest.
