I'm 36+4 with first baby, and might just be being paranoid.

Sat and Sunday I took 1 capsule or raspberry leaf each day, Monday I woke up with a cold and forgot to take another capsule. The cold is getting worse and worse. By yesterday lunch time I was in agony wit spd and stomach pains (maybe tightenings or more like cramps) baby seems to be very active, I actually think it turned around completely whilst in bed last night.

Could this be the effects of the 2 capsules?

Should I be seeing or calling a midwife or is this normal at this point?

Thank you for any advice

Raspberry Leaf also had a similar effect on me, but it will do no harm to call add discuss it with your midwife. You will feel more reassured for it. Good luck for the next few weeks.

nickname thank you, I called the community midwife and they arent worried which made me feel alot better. Did you continue to take the raspberry leaf?

I didn't because it made me feel too ill and uncmfortable in the end. I did have a successful VBAC although the darn boy was 2weeks overdue! He is now a cheeky 9yo.
I am glad the midwife was reassuring and hope that the next few weeks go well. The best is yet to come.
