Can I ask why you are trying to induce labour at 35 weeks?

No sorry i disnt explain myself properly im defiantly not trying to induce labour now but im waiting till im 37-38 weeks pregnant and from my understanding it can take a few weeeks for motherwort to start working so if i start the tincture at 37 weeks i was hoping t will help me into labour round 40 weeks

I remember a discussion on herbs for birthing prep, including a couple links, the second one in the OP includes motherwort and a dosage recommendation for that blend. The consensus seemed to be it's usually best to let the body do its thing in its own time though. http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1325640/five-week-herbal-formula-for-easier-births-do-you-have-your-clients-take-one

Why do they think your rib is broken?  If it is your upper right quadrant, that could indicate HELLP Syndrome.  For that kind of pain, you need to get checked out ASAP.
