    Yes I am. No idea if it'll be of any help or not. I'm being induced a week today at 38 weeks so hoping my cervix might be a bit more favourable.

    I've got 500mg - £1 for 45 in Aldi.
    I'm taking about 5-6 tablets a day now.

    Prob TMI but I actually "inserted" an evening primrose pil tablet inside me every might before bed. I pierced it with a pin first. Found it discussed on the internet and I mentioned it to midwife who saw no problem with it.
    I started when I hit 37 weeks....gave birth at 38+1 ��
