Can anyone help me out here? I know I've read women on here saying not to take it during pregnancy. Are there any solid info. sources? What are your thought?
My midwife told me to start taking 500mg/day at around 36 weeks. I started around 32/34 because I thought- why not?! I didn't have any complications or real strong contractions or anything from it. I took it orally- only! When I went in to be induced at 42 weeks I was dilated to 6.5 -having absolutely no clue! I've heard that if you're taking when you become pregnant- it's probably safe throughout pregnancy- but not to start it once your pregnant. Who knows though. I'll still take it again towards the end of this pregnancy... though I'm not sure what effect it really has???!
