I have never been a big believer in alternative medicine. For me, it’s all about the science. I like to know how things work and why. Acupuncture is something I have thought about doing for a while and ultimately decided to give it a try. Today was my third appointment and so far so good. Luckily I am not scared of needles but even if I was, acupuncture is not nearly as scary as some people think. The hardest part for me is sitting still for 30 minutes while the needles work their magic. It is really difficult for me to sit still and be alone with my thoughts. Sometimes I feel like all I ever think about is the fact that I can not get pregnant. Even so, I think it is good for me to have some quiet time alone and maybe one day I can learn to relax. I do not know if being poked with needles can lead to a baby but at this point I am willing to try pretty much anything.
