Did anyone use Acupuncture?
 
Just curious..

I had my first session last night, it was just a basic toning & prep session, nothing to trigger labor.. But Around 38 weeks I'm going in for the induction treatment (which my midwife okay'd - just no earlier then 38 weeks) & I'm curious if one session will be enough.. Or if I should plan on another one.. or just plan on it just not working at all.. :lol:

I haven't ever tried it....but our family doctor also practices this so I might consider it if we go overdue.

I've never tried it, so I can't really give any advice. I hope that your appointments go well!

Thanks!! I do too! He is pretty big so my midwife & I are both hoping for a healthy early (38-39wk) arrival!

acupuncture was what put me in labor. (i mean greated since 41w I tried castor oil, blue cohosh, spicy foods, eggplant parm, nipple stim, walking miles even in the sand, swinging, jumping, yoga ball bouncing, DTD, etc) I was 41w4d when I had the acu session, DS was born 26 hours later. My acu recommended booking another session for the next day as it usually takes 2 days, which is what I'd recommend for 38w since your body may or may not be ready? you can always cancel if it works. which is what i had to do. :lol: GL!

No, but was going to if I went late. When Liev was born we switched Pediatricians and he also does accupuncture, so maybe some day :)
