Congrats on second trimester MCB
My health food shop assistant said now for me and I'm 32 weeks.
I started taking them from beginning of 3rd tri with dd, ds and same with this bub. A parent I work with is a pharmacist and they recommended start at beg of 3rd tri. just started at 1 a day and now up to 2a day as directed on the bottle. But yours may depend on the strength of dose????
If it helps my tablets say
Brand: herbs of gold - raspberry leaf
Each tablets contains: Rubus idaeus herbal extract equiv. to dry leaf 2g.

J- Good luck for today and hope the induction works well for you! Can’t wait to see your birth announcement on here sometime soon!! You’re right that some (like me) are trying to avoid intervention as much as possible but I also know that it’s what you need to do if medical situations lead to it, and given you’ve got GD and a big baby it sounds to be the best and safest course of action. We all just have our ‘preferences’ and then see how we go when the time actually comes. I ended up with the full works with DS so know how plans have to change! Lol.
Rainbow- can’t believe your bunny made so much mess!
Loony- sorry baby is keeping you awake at night! Mine tends to kick a bit during the night but I can usually go back to sleep easily enough. It’s my big 2 yr old baby that’s causing me problems again at the moment waking up calling for us in the night. lol!!
Waiting- sorry to hear you’ve had such a tough week and condolences about your Gran. I hope your cat makes its way home eventually! I’ve got everything crossed for a good outcome from your scan and echocardiogram today.
Lil Smurfy- RE: sizing, I think my son stayed in 0000 for a while, and he was 7lb 2.5oz, so quite a normal birth weight. And 0000 were loose at first too! The 000 look too big for sure, think on some of the labels i’ve seen they’re meant from about 10lb onwards??? You maybe don’t need to take as many as 2 per day into hospital, as family could perhaps bring some to you if you need more, but take in several for sure, plus couple of spares. That’s what i’d so anyway. But they are so small its not like they take up much space in a bag!!!
And re. raspberry leaf tablets, I also take herbs of gold brand like Loony and I have started already at 31 weeks under midwife guidance due to me trying not to go past 42 weeks again!
Lil Petal- I got my raspberry leaf tablets from the health food shop (Healthy Life) and take 2 per day. I am also starting expressing at 35 weeks 10 mins each side daily, increasing more as due date gets closer. It’s meant to really help. How do you feel about potentially being induced? I am also going to look into some BF classes with the ABA but my midwife is a lactation consultant too so said she’d be able to give me loads of help in the 2 weeks she supports me after the birth. Bonus!
Hi to Miss XamA, FTM, Choccie, Sage, MCB!!!
AFM- Slept badly last night thanks to DS being unsettled again. You’d think by 2.5 yrs of age he’d be consistent! But no, some nights he’s good and gold all night, others he wakes several times and needs settling. Hope this new baby isn’t too much of a bad sleeper or I really will be tired! It’s just the luck of the draw. Listened to my birthing affirmations on my ipod on bus into work today, put my sunglasses on so no one looks at me strangely for sitting with my eyes shut, breathing slowly, haha.
Yay mcb for 2nd trimester!!!
Congrats on 2nd trimester MCB
