Anyone? anyone?!

Sure, I *might* be looking for signs of labor at this point... but my breasts haven't been this tender since the first trimester.

I checked my girls too Nothing here...

I don't know about that being a sign of labor but I sure hope so for ya. It could def. be a pre-labor hormone surge.

Oh, gosh, we're all going crazy. :

Well, then maybe it's a sign that yesterday afternoon's acupuncture did *something* to my hormones... Though had I known about the part where electrical pulses get sent into the needles, I may not have gone - how desperate am I that I have another appt. tomorrow morning?!!

hah thats pretty intense! I'm not sure how I'd feel about electricity being shot into me... I really wish acupuncture was in the budget.. actually how much does it cost on average? I want this baby OUT!

I think cost is highly dependent upon where you live. I happen to live in one of the most $$$ places in the US, as luck would have it. The boutique-ish, new-agish acupuncturists around here charge about $150 per session. I was lucky that my MW knows woman who is older, from China, teaches at local acupuncture schools (that is, knows her stuff), and charges $80 per session. I hope that 2 sessions will do the trick. It's beyond our budget, too, but then... the cost may be worth avoiding other intervention??? Her office is very small, cramped, quirky, and hot, so that combined with the acupuncture = a great time to practice my relaxation techniques!

Oh that isn't too bad actually. I see you're in CA, I figure NYC is about the same so I just called and left a message at the one place I know about .. I definitely could not afford multiple treatments at $150 a pop, but maybe if its a little lower...
