It all depends on the situation, definitely. What is necessary for some women, isn't necessary for all.
But I also believe that there's really not much we can do to keep things from happening - with Elliana's pregnancy I had the most care that I've had since my first pregnancy, and... well, she died. Even though I did everything "right", she wasn't okay. Sometimes things just happen, unfortunately.
They do a urine dip at each appt (whether with the family Dr, OB, or MW) here. I've never bothered refusing it because I always have to pee anyways!
That is true. Sometimes you can't do anything. Sometimes you can. It just depends on the situation.
I agree with the urine. I always have to pee, so whatever
