So, has anyone tried it?? I heard that it is safe to start the tea at 34 weeks. I took 2 capsules yesterday for the first time ever and I was up all night with intense contractions that lead no where. I didn't think it would have quite that much of an effect, but now I am worried about trying them again.

Anyone have an opinion?

I drink 2-3 cups of the tea a day. It doesn't cause contractions just helps tone your uterus. It's never caused me any discomfort and I've been drinking it most of the pregnancy.

Haven't tried the capsules but I've been drinking the tea. I honestly haven't noticed a difference. I am taking epo capsules, though. Again, I haven't noticed a thing!! Maybe I'm not normal lol.

I've been drinking the tea since the beginning of 2nd trimester, I've recently upped it to 2 cups a day. It doesn't induce labor, it tones your uterus like mentioned above. Just helps your contractions be more effective when they do start.

I have the tea and EPO waiting for me to get to 36 weeks. I figure I'll do one cup and pill a day then once I get to 38 weeks Ill up it to two.

Yeah I got a box last week hoping it would make my contractions actually get me from point A to point B on time. Same old thing so far. I drink 2 cups a day.
