  • You want to change dr because you don't want your current docs name on the child BC? OOOOOOOk. He is probably right about the bladder thing and all of that the last three weeks is all about your body getting ready to give birth, just be patient and it will be over with soon enough.

  • I highly doubt there is any doc that will take you at 38 weeks. Most docs won't take you after 20. And I agree too that your doc is probably right about all of that. You need to listen to and trust in your doc. If you didn't like him, you should have found a new one at the beginning, not 2 weeks from your due date. I could never ben comfortable doing that anyway, you wouldn't really know the doc that's delivering your baby and holding its and your lives in his hands.

  • If you are really that concerned I would go to the hospital and have them look at you
