On Tuesday evening I went to acupuncture. It was my first real session – the technical first being when I was in labor with Jemma and had an acute treatment, but this was a full session and I really enjoyed it. Our goal was to reduce my anxiety and fear about birth and induce labor. Post-treatment, I definitely feel more relaxed and in a better mental state about what is to come. No contractions though :) Granted, with both Jemma and Max my water breaking was the first sign of labor so if I had to place bets I’m thinking things will go the same way this round. 

So, that’s what is up with me! And until I have exciting baby news, I figured I’d give you some weekend reading. Here are some of my favorite freelance posts from this last month!

7 Ways I’m Overcoming My Fear of Labor

Apparently labor fear is my cross to bear. I kind of hoped I had resolved it all during my pregnancy with Max – 3 year ago – but it’s back and I’m aiming to overcome once again. What other tips do you have for me?
