    Hi Girls

    I know this question has been asked before but im still a bit confused. I have bought the RLT capsuals (400mg) and am not sure how many to take. It says on the jar to take between 3 - 6 per day. I am 35 weeks now so how many would you suggest I take? Can I start straight away taking 6 or do I need to build up to this? Also can I take 2 at a time or can you only take 1?

    Thanks xx

    hiya

    most people start on one a day and gradually build up the dosage every so many days, upto maximum of 6 per day!!

    i only took one a day from 37weeks (scared to take more), then i ate pineapple which softens the cervix, day before i was due had some spicy food, then done the what put in got it out buisiness lol (used durex lube though) and 1 hour later labout started and LO arrived on due date

    good luck!! :)

    There's a thread about this in third trimester :) and I was advised by one of the ladies to build them up gradually as they brought on Braxton hicks in her case :) xx

    i've got some, my mum got them for me, and he advised that i can start taking them at 32 weeks, either 1 or 2 a day but probably 2 a day because of how bad my previous labour was last time, have i been told wrong? i was going to start them on friday xx
