On your back?! That's crazy! I'm glad you told him off! I haven't had any problems with the doctors with the prenatal treatment (yet) but after DD was born at my 2 or 4 month well baby visit he jumped down my throat about cosleeping and nursing at night. He told me that she should be sleeping through the night by then and threw ear plugs in my face. I threw them away and haven't seen him since. There are 5-6 doctors on the rotation so hopefully it wont be him. I don't really want him near any of my children.

And I agree with this too! I think I'll be fine waiting until the last minute to leave as long as I can work something out with a doula. Last time I was so anxious we went in way too early. I think now that I've been through labor and know more about what to expect I'll be able to judge when to leave better.
