I use mine in the microwave or freezer and they are heavenly. Yes, please heed this advice! Cabbage leaves are REALLY powerful.

Apparently my baby is low (this is #2 for me) and I don't feel the bowling ball people talk about. I do feel pressure on my rectum sometimes, similar to what I remember from labor.

I had cryosurgery after a colposcopy found precancerous cells. I am so glad I had it done--my subsequent paps have been cleared. The conservative OB I was seeing at the time prescribed beta mannan to help eradicate the HPV, and that's gone, too, possibly just naturally over time.
