Oh, Peri, thanks for your post! I guess I'm coming from the memory of fighting to keep them in. My own *midwife* called me three times in ONE DAY to try to get me to induce once I was 36 weeks. She even offered to do it with herbs or homeopathy since she knows how I am
. I was all, "inducing is inducing no matter how natural the method!".
I ended up at the hospital "just to check on the babies" around that time. Fluid levels were great, BP great, heart tones great, fetal movement/lung movement great, etc. I was also dilated 5 cm and was having contractions I couldn't feel every 3 minutes.
I left. The nurses literally followed me to the elevator, saying "this is when we usually admit!"
I told them, "look, clearly I'll be back soon!" Jeepers
I really felt like I spent my whole pregnancy, and daily my last month, fighting off every kind of medical person with a stick, every one of them saying I was "full term". Ugh.
So I got testy, hee hee. I apologize!
