    My midwife suggested the pineapple and rasperry leaf to me at yesterdays appointment but told me to stay well clear of the castor oil. She said it had caused two of her ladies to have emergency c-section and their babies in special care cos of how sick and de-hydrated they had ended up.

    I suppose like everything it depends on people's bodies as I believe there are ladies here that haven't had that effect, but mw really was quite adoment about not using it.

    Not especially. I just put two pearls as far up as possible - Its hard to reach your cervix with your bump and despending on if its effacing. IF you put them in at bed time then they will have dissolved by the time you need to get up for a wee. You can pierce them to help the process. When you have your first wee in the morning, there's a mini oil slick in the loo!

    Not at all. Pumping your breasts for milk isnt painful so its just like that.
    I set the pump on the lowest setting and pump for 10 mins each breast. You just get some colostrum - just the smallest amount. I rub it into my nipples to condition them ready for feeding so its not wasted!

    Hmmm do long hot baths actually do anything??

    I am drinking some raspberry leaf tea ATM, and I am going to try and haul my butt out and do more walking :(

    I have no energy though, its hard, last night (after being home laying around for days) I went out to see my horse and then walked around a store and bought up some last minute supplies...

    I was only gone 3 hours and im friggan bagged today :(

    This weekend will be busy though, 2 Thanksgiving dinners and lots of family stuff. My Oh's mom has lots of puppies as she is a dog breeder, so maybe the puppies will motivate me haha.
