Had my 39 week appointment today with the only Midwife I haven't seen on base and was less than impressed by her. Hopefully she isn't on duty when I head into L&D. Baby's heart rate was 135 and everything is great. I declined being checked last week and this week because I'm hoping for a natural labor and birth and don't feel the need to know. My normal midwife supports this and even encourages it but the one I had today asked me 3 times like she couldn't believe I declined. Then she started saying that SHE might induce me earlier than normal because of the holiday. Normally the base lets first time mom's go 10 days which puts me at the 27th and past the holiday so early just puts me right over the holiday and makes no sense.
I go back on Monday for my 40 week and thankfully my normal midwife agreed to squeeze me into her schedule even though she doesn't have any openings. I have to go just sit and wait until she finds an opening but at this point I don't care if I sit there for a couple hours since I will be 40 + 2 on Monday.
