For the last 3 days I've been burning this stuff near my little pinky toes in anticipation of my baby making a nose dive into my pelvis. Moxibustion is touted to 'encourage movement of the fetus', which indeed it does. Baby moves a lot for several hours after each burning. I just haven't felt the swift kick in the ribs yet that I've been so desperately yearning for.
But I am not one to give up easily. I will persevere, my friends, and eventually my baby will be like 95% of its peers.
And ideally, I won't have to use this stuff before I have to pee in a cup at my next doctor's appointment.
*I will admit it... I've broken the law... I am an addict... I need a 12 step program... I went to the pool to swim today... but just a little... and really slowly... I need my fix...
