Now that I am into the third trimester I have started on dandelion root. I am taking the capsules rather than the tea simply because it is easier to remember to take everyday! (and actually works out cheaper! hehe) ...plus when H&B has a 'buy one get one half off' sale, one can not help themselves but to stock up!
I had terrible water retention with my sons pregnancy and whilst I have had no visable water retention as of yet, I would rather be prepared. There are many wonderful benefit of dandelion root that you can see here - espeically in pregnancy. Preventing/helping with water retention is just one of them!
