Brandy I totally agree with Krista--what about fertility yoga? Or accupressure? If ACU isn't working for you maybe there is another method of CAM. But at the same time, i would suggest you mention to your ACU your discomfort. My ACU says it should never hurt--only feel like a mild tugging or a slight pinch at first, like a mosquito bite.

I must be lucky because I fall asleep every single time, whether I want to or not. Sometimes I try not to!! And I am a totally anxious person AND a light sleeper too! I end up in this weird dream state and leave there as if I'd just smoked a huge joint. LOL. I think because he knows I have anxiety, he does some extra calming points to put me out. LOL.

One time there was a kid screaming at the top of his lungs the entire time I was on the table (he was getting acupressure and not liking it one bit), and I remember just drifting in and out of consciousness. So weird!!!

Brandy, I wonder if your ACU could offer you some relaxation points? Maybe you can discuss this with him/her and see what she says?

Brandy, I think if acu is not making you feel good, you should NOT do it. It's expensive, for one thing, helps some women some of the time (I wasted 5000 bucks on it and never got PG) BUT, if it is making you stressed it is THE LAST THING you need to be doing. You must find things that help you relax. There are other natural treatments for fertility (reflexology, naturopathy, massage, the castor oil packs, vitex, Chinese herbs) that may be more helpful to you.

LOL. Have you ever been when you have a cough? It's excruciatingly painful, lol.


I don't hate it, but sometimes it does hurt. Especially when she hooks up the electricity on the needles she has
