Has anyone been eating dates? Apparently they are good but you have to start eating 6 a day from 36 weeks onward. I started this week, apparently ripens the cervix and very good for healing post partum 😊

Did you feel nauseous straight after drinking the tea? Did it also cause braxton hicks? I haven't tried it yet I'm scared it might start labour too early!?

I did dates. I absolutely cannot stand them now haha. I remember getting home after having my ds and finding the big bag of dates I'd been choking my way through and throwing them in the bin so hard the lid spun round about a hundred times.

Oh and the tea won't start labour! It might give you BH but it won't bring labour on (unless you were about to go into labour anyway). It just helps tone the uterus for a supposedly shorter second stage.

I've heard that the raspberry leaf tea just helps in labour and doesn't help induce. I took it last pregnancy and it made me feel sick every time I took it.

I’m too early to try anything yet with this pregnancy - although I might start some red raspberry leaf tea around 34 weeks. With my first son, I did red raspberry leaf tea from 34 weeks (not much to begin with and then gradually increasing), and I did do a couple of 30 minute walks each week. Other than that, I kind of had the mindset I would go over my due date and didn’t actually plan to do anything but ‘wait and see’.. However, one afternoon, literally as a ‘laugh’, I suggest my hubby and I take a long walk and then have some spicy Thai for dinner. I hate spicy food, but I managed to make my way through a spicy red curry. Anyway, who knows if it was coincidence or not, but my waters broke that night and I went into labour the next day (with my son being born 1 day shy of 40 weeks exactly).

Bonnie11 - man, my hubby would love it if I tried the lots of sex this time round haha! I could never find a comfy position last time (or this time to be honest), so poor guy gets pretty much no action during pregnancy lol!
