I took (starting at 36 weeks) 1 500 orally in the am and one internally in the evening. My water broke at 36 4 days and when I told the nurse I had taken it, she said.."Works everytime".

I've been taking (I have 500 mg gelcaps as well) one orally in the morning, one orally at noon, one orally at night and one inserted internally at night. Maybe this is too much? I just started two days ago (I'm 37 weeks tomorrow), and another mama due the same time as me told me this dosage is what her midwife told her to take so I figured it would be okay.

I am new to this Forum but have been reading the posts for a while and I have never heard of EPO. I am currently doing the raspberry leaf tea and nothing yet but I am sure going to try this. I am due Aug 8 and I am already over this. :banghead: :banghead:
