Random office visit

A patient at 39.1 weeks wants to be induced. Her reasoning? With her last baby she only dilated to 3cms and had to be given pitocin to continue laboring (at 39 weeks no less). Her exam today? 2/60/-2. My explanation? You weren't in labor last time, someone took pity on you and agreed to induce you. Had you waited another week or two, you would have spontaneously labored. Guess what you are gonna do this time? >:)p

Seriously! Glad you didn't give in. People are far too impatient.
