What questions have you ladies asked your doctors/midwives so far? What are you planning to ask?

I have an appointment tomorrow morning and feel like I have a million questions to ask but can never think of any when the time comes.

I haven't had TOO many, but when I do I have to write them down or I will forget 99% of the time. I have a few coming up that I need to get written down in regards to my white coat hypertension and how that'll affect labor, among other things, and if I don't I'll forget to ask AGAIN.

The doc gave me a paper to call when contractions are 5 minutes apart for 2 hours. Yikes. I had a very fast labor last time. My DH does not want to deliver this child. I want to discuss what is realistic given that history.

I want to ask my doctor what his overall routine is when delivering babies. Like how open he is to natural type births and everything that goes along with what will happen during labor and delivery as far as what is normal for him and the hospital he uses. He is kind of 'rush rush' about my appts, so I am not sure how or when this will happen. I am not even taking a hospital tour until the end of May b/c that is the first date that they have a tour that DH will be in town for.

I haven't asked too many questions so far. I normally ask what to expect at the next appointment so I'm not surprised. I'll ask about anything that doesn't seem normal. I was freaking out at my last appointment because my BP was 126/72. Hypertension scares me, but the doc didn't seem too concerned. At my last appointment I asked when they like to see baby turned head-down (36 weeks). That's been about it recently.
