Hi! I'm inducing too and from what I've read/heard, herbs like fenugreek and blessed thistle are supposed to help, but most women who've actually tried them say they are pretty worthless. I'm sure they probably work for biological nursing mothers, but are generally not helpful for inducing. Most women end up on domperidone or another rx. Whatever you decide to try, best wishes and congratulations!

Back from my LC appoint... FYI - I HATE exposing my boobs to others (never much cared for the way they look just myself, ya know... I know...GET OVER IT!)

Anywho... she put me on Reglan (I wanted the Dom, but???), Funegreek 3 caps x 3 times a day, Blessed Thistle 3 caps x 3 times a day, and Mother's Milk Tea 3-5 times a day.

We'll be trying to use the SNS almost exclusively with Livie and then an additional 4-6 10 minute pumpings a day (with the hospital pump I rented).

Good luck!
