Red Rasberry leaf tea/capsules and stronger BH contractions?
 
This is my 3rd pregnancy so I've experience BH contractions before but with my last 2 they were never this strong/painful. With my 1st 2 they were just a tightening that kind of took my breath away for a second, not painful but maybe a bit annoying. I hadn't had any this pregnancy up until about 28 weeks and they are just different than what my other 2 have been. Stronger, crampier, bordering on painful most of the time and pretty painful others. The only difference I can think of is I have been doing RRL for a while now at the recommendation of my midwives. I've been doing the capsules since about 26 weeks and the tea I just started about a week ago. I'm almost 32 weeks now.
Has anyone had this experience with taking RRL? I know it is meant to help strengthen the uterus so I'm guessing it would make sense for the contractions I have to be stronger but just wanted to see if anyone else had the same experience.

ETA just so nobody freaks out and thinks I'm having a ton of BH I never have more than the 6 in the hour that my midwives say to watch out for. I'd say I have maybe 6 or 7 a day.

My BH were more concentrated at times when I took RRL. But mostly I noticed that they were stronger if baby was in a weird position. It made the contraction feel different because the baby wasn't in the optimal location for the action. KWIM?

Hmmm... My MW specifically told me not to do RRL this time, as it would cause too many contractions in a third pregnancy.
