Re: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

I Love RRL tea! I don't know if it was a coincidence for me, but 2 weeks before DS's due date, I started drinking organic RRL tea from the health food store, 4 times a day and did that for 2 days. That second night my water broke and I went into labor. I never took the stuff when pregnant, wonder if that's why I started contractions when I finally did? Either way, I think it has something to do with me having DS 2 weeks early, and thank the Lord I did, he was 10lbs2oz and there's no way the midwife or me could have mixed up the due date, if Ykwim .

Re: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

Why are you being induced at 38 weeks???? If you want to "self induce" try the following:
-Have lots of sex...this releases oxytocin which is the natural form of "pitocin" which they will most likely give you to induce.
-Nipple stimulation also releases oxytocin
-Take lots of walks

Good luck!

I was 40 wks almost 41 LOL!!! I had started and stopped labor 2-3 times that week and finally someone my dh works with told me to do that as MILES AND MILES of walks would NOT do it! They'd start after tons of walking but then stop. Very frustrating!

I drank 32 oz and the next morning I started labor again but this time it progressed throughout the day better than the previous times. Then by 10 pm I knew it was it but went to bed. I couldn't sleep and kept dozing in and out and finally at 2 am I woke dh up and said the contractions were way closer and I was very uncomfortable (worse than any of the other contractions I'd been having) so I took a shower put some makup on and we left around 5 am when they were 5 min apart.

Had my ds at 3:57 pm that day.

I had my dd 7 yrs prior so the docs said the gap could make this second labor like my first baby's labor. Or, it could go super fast like I'd had 8 kids!

Re: Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

I drank the pregnancy tea(RRL) my whole last pregnancy and now with this one. So I don't think it will make you go into labor lol. I second the Sex. Worked 3 times here.
