I have tubular breasts and I want to try and get ready for baby 2. We will be TTC in a few months.
It is my understanding you can NOT take goats rue when you are pregnant - is this true?
Thanks so much

I was under the impression that it was a good idea to take Goat's Rue durign a pregnancy if you have IGT... but I can't find anything to back me up on that...
The above link has some info that might help you. There is a link to "galactagogue sources" that lists some different places to get herbal remedies. There is also info about low milk supply in general and specific info on Goat's Rue. There is also info on Shatavari which is another herb you might want to try.
The above link has some more info on Goat's Rue, and according to her info, you should NOT take it during pregnancy.
I've been taking Alfalfa since 9 weeks and no breast change yet. : Got some sore nips and that's about it. It's such a bummer.
Good luck to you!
I am trying to find a way to increase my glandular tissue while pregnant (as I have inherited a condition where I have insufficient glandualr tissue, and cannot produce enough milk to breastfeed). No breast changes at all yet and I am 15 weeks pregnant. I did not know that you could take goats rue while pregnant and I'm interested in doing so. Anyone with any advice, please respond.
I drank alfalfa/RRL/nettle tea (about 1tbs each per cup) all throughout pregnancy. You could take up to three cups of Metamucil daily. I took shatavari starting at about 30 weeks.. two pills twice daily. And I did the Motherlove goat's rue tincture starting at 36 weeks.
You could also ask your OB if you could take progesterone supplements. I've heard of a woman who took progesterone orally and via injection until the last few weeks of pregnancy and had great success.
