how much red raspberry leaf tea do YOU drink?

I have read the one cup per trimester rule. My midwife said no more then two quarts a day. How much do you drink?

It tones the uterus, hopefully making labor go faster and smoother. I've never drank it through a pregnancy before, so I have no idea if it'll help for me or not.

None, but I sort of wish I had been.

I've been drinking about a cup a day. I plan to drink more the last couple months, but I don't want to get TOO burnt out on it.

Re: how much red raspberry leaf tea do YOU drink?

I was told not to start at all until the second trimester (as it can cause MC in the first), but better yet just start in the third. I didn't start this time until 37 weeks, but that's more because I think the stuff is gross and was avoiding it...

Usually 2 cups per day, but at least 1... yuck

I don't think that it can actually cause miscarriage when drank in moderation, just like everything else. I didn't really take it seriously until 4 weeks before my due date, when I started drinking 4 cups a day, at least. I did have a fast labor, so even if it wasn't the tea, I'm doing it again for the next one!

At the moment none because I've been sick so my nausea is back but I plan to start once I'm feeling a little better. Probably 2 cups a day is all I can choke down.
