    I started 2 a day from 28 weeks, 2 x 2 from 32 and am now on 3 x 2 from 34 weeks :thumbup:

    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!

    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!
