I have some heavy thoughts on my mind. Last menstrual was Oct 6 and conception sometime around Oct 12. This is my fifth pregnancy (no births) and I really didn't feel pregnant so I wanted to "help" my cycle start. I was due Saturday (Nov 3). I started ginger root tea Monday, black cohosh tincture (30 drops/4hours) Wednesday night and dong quai tincture (10 drops/4 hours) Thursday night. Today I finally took a pregnancy test that showed positive.
I'm considering keeping the baby. However, I honestly don't feel like I'll carry to term b/c of my previous pregnancies. Has that much harm been done herbally in a day and a half...I'm probably 4 weeks pregnant.
Hello, it is hard to know how much, if any, harm was done. How do you feel? Do you feel your pregnancy is strong? Any cramping? If you really want this pregnancy, you can start drinking - if you are not already - Red Raspberry leaf infusions and Nettle leaf infusions. Moreso the former this early on in the pregnancy. This can help strengthen your uterus, though I do not know what the reason was for not carrying to term earlier. I do believe how we feel about our pregnancy has the possibility to affect it, not in a vacuum though. How do you feel today?
I would also love to invite you to our Wise Woman Forum (http://www.herbshealing.com/wisewomanforum.htm) and Email Discussion Group (http://groups.google.com/group/Herbal-Healing) for more ideas and support.
