I had posted about my doc wanting me to be induced and I had a lot of input against the idea of pitocin. I thought about it a lot and then after talking to the instructor for my Bradley Method class I have decided that unless it is medically necessary I wont use it. If there is a real reason and my baby could be in trouble, I wont think twice and I will do what I have to do to deliver a healthy baby, but otherwise he can make all the appointments he wants, I simply wont show up.
I would look into getting a new doc if I could, there just isnt an option. But, as far as changing my due date, he is probably right because I had gotten pregnant right after a m/c and d&c so there was no period to date it to. I also had a twin loss early on in this pregnancy that almost made me loose the one bean that I am carrying and that could have affected how the doctors had given me a wrong due date. I really would be measuring way too big if I were two weeks less along in my pregnancy. But regardless of my due date, my baby will come when he/she is ready to come.
Anyhow, I just wanted to say thanks for all the information and input that I got from you all.... there are so many in my DDC that plan to use meds as soon as they walk into the door of the hospital that most of them were pretty much without opinion as far as being induced goes.

They'll try to strong arm you, so make sure you gather lots of information so you feel confident about it.... and I know what you mean about that ddc, its mine too, and I was getting depressed with all the talk of medically unsound decisions which is why I didn't post there for 2 months and now I only poke in.

I am the co-host of that ddc. There are a lot of different decisions being made in there about natural vs medicated, and everyone feels that theirs are the best. As far as I know there may only be a couple of them who are planning on going natural. I also dont think there are many of them planning to breastfeed. I love them all so much and dont knock their choices about parenthood. I think that its definitely something that only you can decide.... but sometimes its hard not to push my theories, but that is my job, just to offer my help and step aside. I just wish more people saw natures way for what it is, at least about breastfeeding.... thats people all over the place though, not just on jm.

Hey there doornail dorothy! (I love love your s/n by the way lol).

Im glad you came to a decision youre comfortable with, and also inside Im happy youre choosing to go without the pitocin lol. I tell you what - Theres a lot of things about natural CB that I like, and honestly, if I had to pick any kind of medication - pitocin would be the last on the list. I feel that strongly about pitocin. To me - theres just too much involved & it opens too many doors that I prefer to avoid personally.

But, it sounds like you got all the information you needed, and you are comfortable, and that matters too

That little baby will come in its own sweet time With or without the pitocin lol.

keep us posted!

Lala...
