Doctors... Why?

I'm feeling belligerent.

I don't want to go to the doctor.

Oh, I know what they tell you: Once a month until 32 weeks, then every other week until 36 weeks, then every week until you deliver. But why? So they can poke and prod me until I'm sore and my blood supply (which is already stretched) is low? So they can tell me what I already know-- that my baby is doing well? Like the almost constant moving and stretching and pushing she does isn't enough to tell me that. 

And what's with all the tests they want you to do? Are they really ALL necessary?  And I really don't care about what the doctor thinks about how often I should have a pap smear done.  I don't want anyone down there!  I've never had an abnormal result, and I don't think now is the time to try to get one!!!

And what are they going to do to me if I don't go? Or if I don't agree to every test they ask for?  Send me to my room without any supper? I mean, come on.

So, I don't want to go to the doctor.

So there.

He He I only went 2x before 34 weeks with Kent, and delivered at 38weeks. Keith had a cyst on his brain so I went more frequently.
