I'm 37 weeks now ladies. Baby is 3/5 engaged. But it could still mean weeks. She might be late still. I got excited thinking she will be out soon but not necessarily lol.
How are you ladies?
You made it to 37 minib!! That's great news. Have you finished work? Bows the time to put your feet up and relax! You can also do acupuncture induction which is suppose to help prepare your body. I did it last time. It actually hurt a bit and I'm not sure if it actually did anything!
Well I went into labour naturally and avoided an induction, not sure if it was the acupuncture that helped but it certainly couldn't hurt!
@SoReady did you lie down on your back or on the side for acupuncture? I was always on my back but now at 37 weeks that might be a struggle?
When did you go to labour?
I think I did lie down but with lots of pillows and quite elevated in more of a reclined sitting. It was mostly needles around the legs and feet from memory with some pressure point massage around the hands and ankles. She then showed me those points to keep pressing at home (or getting hubby to for me). They were what were quite sore, not the needles. I went into labour at 40+1
I went to Bump acupuncture as they specialise in IVF/pregnancy
No problem. I think Bump have some info on their website about the 36 week plus sessions if you want to check it out too
