You need to eat 8 and make sure you eat the core too () but IMHO it doesn't work at all. I tried everything that everyone told me and was still 15 days late after induction! Baby will come when baby is ready, sorry!
I tried it-3 whole ones a day. I tried clary sage in the bath from 38 weeks, I tried perineal massage from 30 weeks. Went into labour at 39 weeks. Waters broke at 6.30am and nothing by 2pm. Went for a vietnamese hot dish and went into labour at 3pm. Was 6cm by 6pm.
Lord knows whether any of it actually made a difference or was just coincidental.
Cherish these last few weeks because you will have no time at all to rest after! The next time round i wont be in so much of a hurry!
Do you know what the best thing I done was, gentle long walks!
I took the dog out everyday and the further I walked the stronger my contractions got, they died down after an hour once I got home, and I went 14 days late and failed an induction and had C section instead BUT that was the only thing that got a semi result lol
You do need to eat the core as well - I had two (and a burning mouth - ouch!!!) and went for a two hour walk round Sainsburys on the basis that I could lean on the trolley! Next day I went into labour. I think it's the walking! Good luck though!
