    Hey all.

    Sorry probably a bit of a pointless post but im bored and cant sleep. I am just on with my first cup of RLT and i can honestly say that it isnt the nicest thing i have drank lol.

    I wasnt going to start drinking it until 37 weeks as that is what my mw had said but i am getting induced anywhere from 37 weeks and dont find out a definit date until Tuesday, So thought i would start a few days earlier. I was in 2 minds wether to start it now but like my OH and one of the lovely ladies on here have said, Its not like anything will happen straight away and 1 cup now and then wont hurt.

    Amy xx

    Oh I got some from Tesco. I think the brand is Clipper. I really like it. Just tastes of raspberry with no bitter after taste.
