  • No castor oil. It'll just make you really sick. Doesn't work.

    Just stay busy, walk and keep moving around, sex, cleaning, go shopping, just anything like that.

  • ok that sounds great.

  • Well it works but you must have a devoted husband. I had my husband strip my membranes with our second and third daughter. This consist of pushing up on your water and running his fingers around the edge of your cervix. It is uncomfortable and it may take 3 or 4 times about 1 hour apart but it does work.
