Dates


I'm trying to avoid an overdue pregnancy like last time and have been reading about eating 6 dates a day! I hate the things but will give it a go but am confused... Does they need to be fresh or dried??! Where ever I look they looked dried but I'm not knowledgable on the things the know for sure! tIA oh and someone could post a link I would really appreciate it

dates are VERY (read impossible) hard to find fresh, so I'm guessing dried

I have seen fresh dates but they are pretty much the same as dried ones anyway.

I ate them in my last pregnancy starting about 6 weeks before due date... it did get hard to eat them lol! I sometimes would put them in my smoothies, made them nice and sweet... or most days I'd count six and put them on the counter and whenever I felt a little hungry I'd eat one... helped rather than stuffing them all in at once.

I was actually 2 weeks early and only had a six hour labour... No idea if the dates did that but I'll take it! I also drank two cups of red raspberry leaf tea and a ton of lunges and squats!
