We're pregnant, but we're not perfect ...

This week's confession:

I'm 41 weeks, and last Friday, my OB told me he wanted to induce Monday morning. I told him I'd have to think about it. He told me to meet another doctor from the practice at 7a.m. at the hospital.

We parted with him adamant that I be there, thinking the appointment was set. I never said I'd actually be there.

So I just didn't show up.

The doctor does not have a call line and the office does not open until 9 a.m. Their practice has the best VBAC rates and they are very nice to me, they just don't have an answering service. -- anonymous
