I have been lurking here since before I got my BFP and I have posted just a time or two. I was waiting until I saw the OB and had an u/s to start posting.
The OB I saw yesterday was great. He took the time to talk to me and he seemed very open to my questions and ideas. The only "iffy" things he said were that there were two things this practice has very strong feelings about: 1) they would not attend home births (what OB does?) 2) They required IV access at the hospital. He DIDN'T say I had to have the IV fluids which is good.
I was feeling very good about everything, but then he also said, "I will just share that most women DO get the epidural because having a baby really hurts." Hmm. I hope that doesn't mean they push epidurals on their patients.
Anyhow, I am here and am looking forward to getting to know you better!
