I have discussed it with her. This will maybe be hard to understand cause it's so different from what we experience in US and other 'developed' countries but doctors here aren't used to ppl questioning their directives lol. Most patients here just do whatever it is the doctor tells them and most patients here are pretty ignorant to their own bodies. I do think my doctor knows I am not like that but I also think she will just refuse to deliver me or induce me...actually i know NO ONE here who has ever been induced (i.e. pitocin or similar) that I'm not even sure they do it!
I like my doctor very much but this subject is one we disagree strongly on and there aren't many other ob's in my city. I keep thinking if I can induce with castor oil and wait labor out at home by the time I go into the clinique she'll have to deliver me...and well I can claim to be one of those freaks of nature who didn't feel labor lol
