Sorry, this won't be a well written post, but something is better than nothing, right?
I'm in major period pain, and working projects to prepare house for ds'd Confirmation party, which is in 48hours.
First and foremost, I would not be overly concerned about the 'danger' of acupuncture because you are a vbac mom. You know that it is gentle stimulation, not cytotec.
I'd personally be more concerned about messing with a natural, healthy process in a healthy mama, and starting a lead into interventions leading to even more interventions and possible culminating in another surgery, but that's me.
My last baby was 2.5 weeks "late," induced with pitocin after I *stupidly* agreed to test for gbs, and my water broke without immediate (24 hrs) labor. No way would I have agreed to induce without being gbs+, and in hindsite, I'd never do that again even *with the gbs. Live and learn.
Also, don't the med ppl just LOVE to throw around exaggerated rupture rates to vbac moms?!! At eight months along, a MEDwife in the practice decided to tell me I had a TEN percent chance of rupturing??!! WTH?! Needless to say, she was OFF my 'case!'
Wishing you a healthy labor and baby,
