    When did everyone start drinking RLT and taking evening primrose oil (both orally and vaginally)? I can’t remember anything from when I took it last.

    I started drinking 1 cup a day of RLT at 27w? Then after a few weeks I switched to 2 cups. I actually enjoyed it haha. I obviously won't know what it would have been like without it, but I was already 2-3cm dilated by 32w and when I had my son (38.5w) my labor was quick and he came out in one push.

    I didn't use the oil though

    With my first daughter I started with 1 cup of RLT a day from the beginning of my 3rd trimester, then upped it to 2-3 cups a day from around 36 weeks. I also started taking the EPO both orally and vaginally from 36 weeks. I went into labour at 38 weeks, progressed quickly - total time from first contraction to birth was 7 hours and I went from 1cm to fully dilated in an hour. Pushing stage was quick and easy - 3 pushes and she was out! Will definitely be doing the same again this time :thumbup:
