My doc actually apologized to me for not listening. I knew I was around 43 weeks.

He said he'll listen to me if I have another kid

why not listen to the mother in the first place? most know their bodies way better than a doctor can just from running a few tests

Well with my first daughter, it was the worry of the amniotic fluid deplenishing and the chance of this and that like meconium(baby pooing before being born and getting it in their lungs). I probably should have pushed for another day or two because I had my bloody show a day before I was induced with her.

Yeah, I'm much more educated this time around but it's always been hard for me to argue with someone. Well besides DH :P I haaate conflict or tension and it's just hard for me to do, but I will if I have to. Hopefully my gut feeling is right and I won't go that far this time around lol.

5 1/2 days early...pressured into unnecessary induction but I think he would've come in a few days anyway because I was contracting at the hospital, lost my mucus plug, and was bleeding some
