I know quite a bit now about how to go about resisting pressure (of various sorts) to go into hospital; so if you do want any of the stuff I've dug out about it, let me know. A's and my attitude has been that she gets to make (informed) choices about her own body & baby & labour, & once she's done that, I get to be gatekeeper & deal with any external pressure against that (without distracting her, as she will be busy!). But yeah, it can be a bit of a balancing act & certainly *you* don't want to feel put under any extra stress. I'll let you know how it goes!

There is also the option of refusing further blood tests (if you're happy that you feel healthy enough etc). If they haven't got anything saying you're below 10, they can't act on it :)
