Some you are bothered by Braxton Hicks. Red raspberry leaf tea may help. I drink it every day, and by end of week 37 have felt only one sharp pain. The handful of other BH were mild. I honestly believe I've been pain-free because of the tea. I have the relief that people expect when they drink it.
Every night, I make a very concentrated tea
In a 1 quart jar, I steep:
4-5 tablespoons of red raspberry leaf
4-5 tablespoons of stinging nettle leaf.
Pour in the boiling water, and let it steep covered overnight to get most goodness out of the leaves.
The next day, just drink 1/2 concentrate + 1/2 water. Keep adding boiling water to the jar, and it'll last you all day.
There are other beneficial herbs you can add to the mix: dandelion, oat straw, alfalfa, melissa come to mind.
You can buy very fresh leaf from small farmers at localharvest.org.
