    My OH thinks I'm being excessive but I'm SURE i've read people taking more


    in the morning i take 4 RRL capsules and 1 EPO capsule

    at night i do the same, but also insert 1 EPO vaginally

    was thinking of increasing the EPO when i hit 40 weeks (saturday)

    It's not possible to overdose on these things is it lol :wacko:

    I had the raspberry leaf tea and had been drinking it from 32 weeks. I went from 2-10 cm in about 45 mins so it worked! Also don't think you can OD them.

    At this stage of your pregnancy you can't really overdose but here's a suggested schedule:

    32 weeks - 1 RLT tab in the AM.
    33 weeks - 1 RLT tab in the AM, 1 in the PM.
    34 weeks - 2 RLT in the AM, 1 in the PM
    35 weeks - 2 RLT in the AM, 2 in the PM
    36 weeks - same RLT as above, 1 EPO orally in the AM
    37 weeks - same RLT as above, 1 EPO orally in the AM, 1 EPO vaginally in the PM
    38 weeks - same RLT as above, 2 EPO orally in the AM, 1 EPO vaginally in the PM
    39 weeks 'till baby arrives - same RLT as above, 2 EPO orally in the AM, 2 EPO vaginally in the PM

    I'm drinking raspberry leaf tea, and may well start taking EPO but there's no way on earth I'm putting them in my foof! Theres too much risk of infection for a start.
