I am almost 34 weeks pregnant and this little girl is trying to make her debut early. I ended up going to Labor and Delivery last weekend to help stop contractions. I was cleared to resume my normal routine but have been cautious. I walked around Wal-Mart yesterday for a half hour and that seemed to set them off again. The contractions weren’t as close together and more sporadic than they were over the weekend, but nevertheless after 2 1/2 hours of resting and laying down they weren’t going away. I did not call my doctor because they weren’t regular. I decided to look up what it said in my Modern Essentials book. It said to drop 3 drops of Lavender on my abdomen and rub in to help stop contractions.
I did just that. You know what? The contractions started getting farther apart, not as intense and eventually stopped. I was amazed.
I go in spurts with essential oils. Some days I feel like they don’t do anything for me, and then I have another experience like this!
