Has anyone ever drank it during pregnancy? When did you start?

I drank it with my last pregnancy and my Ob brought it up again this time saying it may help my blood pressure not get high this time but I couldn't remember when I started it. I'm thinking I did 1 glass in 2nd trimester then 2 glasses in the 3rd. Does that sound right? Or is it a certain week

Yes I drank it with my son around 24 weeks. I've been drinking it now since about 14-15 weeks because of my morning sickness. I am now almost 22 weeks. I had a very easy vaginal birth with my son and hope for the same with my daughter.

Mine was easy as well so of course I'm willing to try it again just in case that was why haha. I think I will wait a couple more weeks and start it

I've never had it and I don't even know where I would be able to buy it around here

You can buy it in grocery stores where they sell herbal tea, or in health food stores.  It's pretty easy to come by.

Any time in pregnancy is good. The longer you take it the better. 

I never got around to buying it until 3rd trimester and i drink 2, occasionally 3 cups a day. I will stop when i'm about 36-37 weeks.

I put honey & sugar in mine last time and it wasn't bad. Also cooling it helped
