Please tell me what I did wasn't completely moronic!

I took castor oil about 5 hours ago. My tummy feels like it's falling apart, but it's not contractions.
Does anyone know if this crap (no pun intended) is actually going to work? I'm 2 days over due and I really want this baby out, but I really hope I didn't make a mistake.

  • I'm really sorry for your predicament. That sucks SO bad! I hope you get to feeling better. Maybe the tummy problems will make the labor start? I hope the crap part stops first though! Good luck!
