Well, I posted this dilemma on another board I belong to and they sort of made me feel guilty about lying... Well, not guilty, really, but they posed the question:
"Can you really feel happy with a caregiver that you have to lie to?"
I live in IL where they don't allow birthing centers and there are very few midwives... none in my area. I am now in the care of a new practice because I was not happy with the doc who delivered my daughter. It took two months just to get my appointment for an annual exam last month just so I could be considered a patient. I don't know if I would be able to find a different/better caregiver now?
This is where I am going now:www.obgynwomantowoman.com
I know it isn't such a big deal, because u/s dating is taken into consideration, too... but women tend to go "late" in myfamily anyway, and I had a horrible (and dangerous) induction with DD5.
Am I setting myself up for disappointment with the practice if I have to lie to them to get the date I KNOW would be accurate? Or is it possible for a doctor to still be good, but still ornary about pregnancy dating practices?
