Bucking the system

I know it’s pretty pathetic that this makes me feel good. It’s really a pretty small thing, but for me, right now, it feels kinda big. I called yesterday and cancelled my BIG ultrasound. Why? Because I don’t want to do it. Because I don’t HAVE to do it. I mean, really, they work for me. Right? Who’s in charge here the employer or the employee? I am all for demedicalizing pregnancy & childbirth. I’m taking my stand (puny though it is). This is my fourth pregnancy and it’s taken me THIS LONG to take control of my own pregnancy. For those who know what I rebel I can sometimes be, this should come as no surprise. Though it surprises me now to see how long this took. I wonder what I'll do next?

This would have been the ultrasound where they would check out all the inner workings of the baby. And, no, I don't think they can make me have the ultrasound. I'll see how my appointment goes tomorrow.

i see how it can feel like a big thing... way to go with your intuition instead of the institution. more power to the mommies!
