Thanks for all of the replies. I have been going through a LOT of stressful things since Sunday. My blood pressure even at home has been a little high lately, so when I went to the doctor today she prescribed the blood pressure medication again and I got it filled this time. She is now wanting me to come in twice a week for the non stress tests. There are still no other problems. The doctor still plans to induce. She mentioned taking me to the hospital today, but very quickly dropped it without even any argument from me. I think she plans to really push it next week when I am 37 weeks and is preparing me for it this week (just my opinion).

During the ultrasound, baby did all four things they were looking for. They said she looks very healthy and is estimated to be 6 pounds 9 ounces right now (36 weeks, 4 days). Both my husband and I were over 8 pounds and they said if she gains a half pound a week like expected, she should be around 8 pounds, too, if we go to 40 weeks.
