I am curious, if you are FTM why will they not let you go past 40 weeks though?

Oh, and to me the GBS was easier than a pap, I don't remember then ever using the speculum

The fetal medicine doctor doesn't want me to go past 40 weeks due to my two past miscarriages and I am high risk with a blood clotthing disorder called MTHFR. He said there is a higher risk in complications for me and baby for women like me who go past due date.

I'm not complaining the idea of having the baby a little early as I would rather be safe than sorry. I've suffered enough pain and grief in the past and this pregnancy hasn't been the easiest so I appreciate that this one doctor isn't taking chances with the life of me or my miracle son.
