I was 1 cm dilated for a month! I also had high blood pressure. However, it stayed stable and I gave birth to my first child at 10 days past my due date. If this is your first child, they will do everything they can to not induce you as there is a greater chance of c section with first pregnancy inductions (for whatever reason). I begged. LOL Doc said no. But do monitor your blood pressure. You start to have weekly visits at this point and they will certainly be checking then and checking your urine for protein. They DID induce my second baby at 39 weeks so this is mainly a first pregnancy issue. good luck and hope you are still feeling okay in the pregnancy. It's hard at this point but you are almost to the finish line!
