So, I'm brand new to Mothering (a long-time lurker de-lurking!) and haven't read the whole 107 pages of this thread, but have read quite a bit. I'm wondering - has anyone had experience with an irritable uterus and doing the tea, specifically the strong infusions? I have been drinking the tea for about 5 weeks now, but just doing a bag a day following the instructions on the box - I had thought the strong infusions were only for labor day. I also have an irritable uterus and have been having regular, timeable contractions every few minutes since before 28 weeks (I'm almost 34 weeks now. The IU started before I started the tea, and in the quantities I'm drinking it it hasn't seemed to have any effect on the contractions in either way - they're strong and frequent no matter what I do. I'm worried that if I do a stronger infusion it would make my contractions spin out of control or possibly kick-start labor, but I'm also worried after reading parts of this thread that if I'm just drinking a cup or two a day it won't have any real effect. Any advice?
