In brief: Ask your doctor...

Your obstetrician is following your blood pressure closely.
They have you in the hospital to make sure that you are closely monitored. The decision to induce is made when the risks from remaining pregnant are greater than the risks of premature birth. Talk to your doctor! Asking your questions to the one taking care of you is the best way to understand their plan and thought process.
