I really do want to see an outside specialist since my husband is in the Army and I am dealing with doctors that talk me in circles. Our son is due May 30th. He is our first baby. I had a serious ovarian fibroid tumor cut away from my uterus along with my left ovary and fallopian tube removed just about 2 years ago. Doctors at Madigan Army Medical Center are trying to tell me that since I have this history, they don't want me to go into labor. They want to to an amniocentesis when I am 7 & 1/2 months along to see if the baby's lungs have fully developed. If so, they want to take him out that same day by c-section. All of this to me sounds so risky since he would be so early. I want to know, if it is such a dire need for them to take him early, why am I not considered a high risk patient and why since I have had both preterm labor and an amniotic fluid leak already am I not seeing a high risk doctor? Anyone have some advice?
