No wonder c section rates are at a peak! People have no idea what they're doing with their bodies! : There's definitely a time and a place for intervention. I know that. But seriously.
I'm so usually not judgemental, and I'm trying so hard not to be rude. I'll either reply that it's not a good idea, or I'll just keep my mouth shut. I really wsh I could just say "What, are you stupid???"
And when these inductions come back with their stories about how wrong it all went, it is so hard not to say "I told you so!"
I cannot tell you how annoyed I get when people ask me when I will be induced or if I'm having a scheduled c/s.
Yes, I'm interested in speeding things up, but I'll be 38 weeks tomorrow! Yes, I want to beat the 12/31 "deadline" so that our insurance can't screw us over (DH's company changes providers on 1/1), but I'm not going to endanger myself or my baby JUST to get her out by 12/31 !!!
I wish more people WANTED to be educated!
There was also a woman who asked me (shaking her head) if I'd had a natural birth already. When I said "Yes. Two." with a smile, she just kept shaking her head. If I had said No, I could tell she would have gone on and on about how I would change my mind . . .
