I know a bunch of people that are pregnant right now, and they're really starting to annoy me. One just had her baby. She was induced on her due date, and after less than six hours of labor, she had a c-section cause "that huge baby just isn't going to come out." It was barely seven lbs and she is not a small woman. Then another who's due date was sep. 9 till the 20 week ultrasound when they moved it to the 1st (I didn't think they could do that at the later ultrasound), just had her membranes stripped yesterday (the 30th) cause she was ready to go. I know that it's tiring to be pregnant, but there's probably a reason that the baby's not come out yet... it's not ready! I mean they are inducing her potentially more than 10 days early! I'm just really frustrated, and not really with the women. I DO think that it's your responsability to educate yourself so you can make the best choices, but over all, I'm so irritated with the drs for pushing this stuff. I mean these women are perfectly capeable of having babies the normal way in their own time. But the doctors push these interventions, and they lead to c-sections cause the baby's not ready, or the doctor isn't patient. But instead of explaining that to these women, the doctors make it sound like the woman's body was incapeable. "you just can't have a baby that big." or "your body just isn't going into labor on it's own." I mean they're not even over due!!! and the didn't have any complications till the doctors started messing with them! ARGH!!!! But the thing is, this it totally normal and socially acceptable. Those dr.s will just keep on doing what they're doing, cause it's okay. And I find that just wrong.
