Re: Anyone refuse pap smears/vaginal exams during pregnancy?

mama, I'm kinda on your page... I have to wonder how we ever conceived 4 children.
I LOVE your avie.

OP, thanks for posting this. I *know* I have a right to refuse, but it's still intimidating, especially around here. Everyone just does whatever a doc says, no questions asked. I plan on refusing the exam at my first OB appointment next week, and I'm really wanting to refuse most of the blood work (blood type, rubella immunity, STI's). Hopefully I won't be searching for a new doc/midwife set-up b/c that'll mean having a midwife from out of town and having this baby at home!
