Yes, it's my first. And it's weird - up to that appointment, everything i'd experienced from this m/w practice had been super. They practice collaboratively, 6 MDs and 10 CNMs, so you wind up seeing a different person almost every time. The mw who told me I could only go to 41 weeks - I had never seen her before and didn't feel all that comfortable with her, so I'm definitely going to express my displeasure at my upcoming appointment. I'm not about to get something forced on me that I don't want - I'm not really the type to just go along with things because the doctor says so. And I've told them from the get-go that I absolutely want to avoid the vicious pit/epi/section circle.
It was the way she put it: "At your next appointment you can go ahead and schedule your induction date for the 26th - you know, to save the day, in case you wind up needing it."
