So, as I posted before I had an appointment last Friday and they messed up so my doctor wasn't there and I had to meet with a random nurse practitioner. I was planning on going over my birth plan and stuff, but that didn't happen.
Anyway... I was at work all day and didn't check my phone until I got off. I had three missed calls. The first from my doc's nurse saying that my doctor wanted her to call and talk to her about induction. The next call was from L and D asking me to call by three to talk about my appointment. :eek: The last one was from my doc's nurse again saying that they had scheduled me for an induction tomorrow at 6 am... that doc thought it was a good idea because of my issues with decreased fetal movement and that I could call before they closed at 4 if I had questions. WTF. Yes... I have been to labor and delivery like 20 times from not feeling him.. but they always say he looks great.... so ... is there some medical reason, or what????? I got off at 6 so it was too late to talk to any of them.
What is interesting is that my birth plan says no pitocin, breaking my water or meds unless medically necessary, but I didn't get a chance to go over that!
Blar.... I don't know what to do. The on call doc is for emergencies only I am pretty sure, so I don't know if I should call them or call Land D..... also, is there like.. something I DON'T know about the movement issues or my pregnancy or something that would actually warrant an induction, or do you think that is just a good day for a delivery for my doc.
Being induced is NOT my idea of a good labor.
UPDATE Okay.. I called labor and delivery and the called my doctor. My doctor said she was okay with me not being induced. I asked if there was something I was missing because they always tell me he looks good when I am there to be monitored and the nurse said no, the medical reason was because although he looks good when being monitored if I have decreased fetal movement consistently they cannot guarantee there isn't something wrong and since the can induce at 39 week they will. I went ahead and canceled the appointment. It really makes me nervous with her saying that... but I have been going to labor and delivery for decreased movement since 28 weeks because of my anterior placenta, so while I am there often I don't feel anything is different. I have an appointment with her on Thursday and I think I will ask her to strip my membranes. My husband proposed that if I don't give birth by the 19th/20th (due the 19th) we induce then. I had it set in my head I wouldn't do that unless I was a week or more past due, but both my husband and I have believed since the beginning that today is actually my due date. I really really really want him to come on his own now because all of this just created a lot of concern and worry for me
