yes, I agree that I definitely think women are asking, and some even before they are due! Why on earth you would WANT Pitocin is beyond me and something I simply can't comprehend but to each their own I guess.

My OLD ob/gyn would start asking you at 39 weeks if you wanted an induction! When I went overdue with Ryan, he went ahead and made an appointment for me at L&D! I got a message on my phone one night from a nurse telling me to be there the next am for my induction. Needless to say, I didn't go. Which earned me a personal call from the OB asking me where I was. I told him no flipping way! Went into labor a few days later.
