What I did to keep my OB from pressuring me was explain that a trial of labor was very important to me. I wanted to go into labor on my own. She did ask at my 39 week appointment if I'd schedule a c/s during an opening she had the next Monday and I refused. I was actually quite lucky, it was around Thanksgiving so she had no room to squeeze me in until black Friday, so I didn't see her again until almost 41 weeks and truth be told, I skipped that appointment My water broke that morning and I didn't want them trying to force me to stay in the hospital.
