I'm 32 weeks today, can I start taking these yet and how many should I take?
Yeah you can start some mws say 32 some say 34, 36 38 but generally 32 is fine i started with one a day then upped to two at 34 then 3 at 36 now i take four a day at 38 weeks x
I started 2 a day from 28 weeks, 2 x 2 from 32 and am now on 3 x 2 from 34 weeks
If you get lots more Braxton Hicks you may want to reduce the dosage a bit, I have had loads of BH from early on anyway!
thanks girls, think I'll start tonight then with 1 and take it from there
What mg are they...? Mine are 750mg per tablet and i take 2 a day.
ones I have are 400mg capsules it says they can be opened up and used to make a tea
ooh.... i wonder what they taste like as tea..?
not brave enough to try not a big fan of flavoured tea
I was advised by mums homepath and my MW to start taking them at 36 weeks, so I did
The tea is OK it dont taste like much to me and i leave it to brew for a good five mins! Starting it from 32 weeks is a good idea as you can build it up slowly and it gets in your system, also good if your baba decides on an early arrival and you've already been taking it! I'm sure the tabs are just as good as tea tho but i've been using both!
