My back is KILLING me today! I finally called my OB/GYN to make sure I shouldn’t be worried about pre-term labor. (I was induced, but had back labor with kiddo #1.) Their advice? Make a Rice Sock (just like in this about.com tutorial), heat it, and apply it 20 minutes at a time. I don’t have any lavender, so do you suppose a lavender scented dryer sheet in each sock would add the fragrance I desire?
I’ll comment later and tell you how it went.
