    Bit of a pointless thread really... sorry!

    I am counting down the days until bubs is fully cooked. Just wondering if anyone else is nearly there and counting down too?

    I've recently purchased some raspberry leaf tea and bath bubbles with clary sage oil in it which I am looking forward to starting to use. Hopefully that will stop me going over 40 weeks, really dreading that thought! Even if she pops out at 39+6 I'll be happy, although I'm sure I'll be moaning from 37 wks onwards lol

    Hehe don't worry ;)

    I read that yesterday, that you were telling someone your cervix is soft so it seems to be working, that's what made me think it was worth a try! Just bought a small box from Tesco yesterday!

    I'm 35 weeks on Friday, I thought that might be too soon, thought I'd have to wait until 36?

    No the caps i bought said aslong as ur after 30weeks.
    Ill find the link for u now hun, gives u the recommended number of cups or caps to take depending on how far gone u are.
    Im taking 6 caps a day and 1-2 cups.
    But at 34 wks i started with a cup a day and 2 caps i think.

    Did u buy the clipper brand teabags? they are the strongest with 50% raspberry leaf xx

    Yeah I think I got Clipper Organic?

    I might try one in a bit then. I dont normally like fruit/herbal teas, they never seem to taste of the fruit they are supposed to. Oh well, if it does the job it will be worth it

    Thanks for the advice :)

    They had it in Tesco, just with the other herbal and fruit teas. It was a 'big' Tesco so maybe if you are looking in one of the small ones they won't have it?

    I'm pretty sure it was Clipper Organic, 20 bags for £1.99
