Well I accidentally bought 300mg capsules which I think is very low, because most sites seem to say you can take a couple of 1000mg capsules a day. So I'm just going to take 3 x 300mg orally and 2 vaginally a day I reckon. We'll see!
Haha lucky DH! I'm seconding a pad - don't be surprised if you think your waters have gone during the night, there's a lot of "residue"... Didn't work for me, just gave me thrush (soz) but have mates who've sworn by it. Good luck!
Does it really help? I asked a midwife about it and she said don't do it, but didn't specify why. From the research I've done (ie Google!) it seems that some say to insert it and others say to take it orally.
I did not get lots of leakage afterwards, I did not notice anything much but a large bloodied show that following morning! Did another the following night and baby was born 7.30am that morning, so can't really comment regarding amount of leakage for that second night!!!!!
For my first two I tore when giving birth, with this one I did not, even though nearly 2lbs heavier, I attribute this to the softening done by the EPO capsules internally.
