Where is Baby Brody???

Well, yesterday I had my first acupuncture apt. (it was to induce labor). She placed needles in my hands, the inside of my ankles, my lower back and in my upper trapezius muscle. She hooked up the needles in my hands and feet to a machine that stimulates that acupuncture point. The entire treatment lasted about 70 minutes. It was relaxing but it did not produce the results I wanted... I went to see my OBGYN today and he said there was not much change in my cervix from last week. He did say that he had no problem with me seeing an acupuncturist...
He also told me that he was sure something will be happening by next week so he scheduled me for an induction next Thursday November 30th. Which is ironic since that is the date that I originally thought was going to be my due date!
I see Dr. Dumas (the acupuncturist) tomorrow morning for my second visit. I am going with a positive attitude that my body with hopefully respond to. I am very excited about Brody coming and I am really hoping it will be this week sometime. Mainly because my mom has the next 5 days off and would be able to help me out.
I will keep everyone posted about my progress.

PS if you think of me please pray for an easy labor and delivery (and that it happens this week :)) Thanks!
