I am fixing to be induced in 2 weeks if I dont go into labor on my own (yes I know I can refuse, but for now I am just hoping to not have to go through that battle, but we will see when it gets closer to the date) And my Dr and my doula suggested using evening primrose oil to soften my cervix so my horribly painful very regular braxton hicks contractions might actually turn into real labor. My question is, how do I do this vaginally, they said to rub the oil on my cervix...now that I am thinking about it (and my doula is at another birth and I dont want to bug her to death) how do I do that without it rubbing off before it reaches my cervix. I thought about poking holes in the gel caps and then inserting it, but will the gel cap disolve or will I have to fish it out in the morning? Gross Iknow, but seriously I am confused and lost as to how to do this.
