  • Well since when did she become an OB? Everyone is different when it comes to L&D.

  • I'd have to turn around and ask her, "So when did you get your medical degree?"

  • No one ever really knows, not even our OBs and midwives. I'd just laugh it off, and move on.

  • I would ask to please see her medical degree.

  • Yes, just what every expectant mother wants to hear "I predict more pregnancy for you" That alone would irritate me right now considering I am now past my due date. boo!

  • very annoying...

    Answer by seasnakesc at 2:22 PM on Jan. 18, 2009

  • I agree that it's annoying. But then again, EVERYTHING annoys me while I'm pregnant. Just because you're still tiny and not effaced or dilated yet doesn't mean a thing. I went in for my 39 week checkup, was not quite 1 cm dilated & barely effaced. They scheduled an induction for the next week, but I started having contractions that night after I got home from the dr! Gage was born the next day. : ) It's totally evil of someone to tell a pregnant woman that they think she'll go past her due date. lol
