  • I tried everything... raspberry tea, nipple stimulation, walking, sex and membranes stripped twice

    I was induced at 42 weeks..

  • Some studies have shown that there may be a connection to castor oil being used to induce labor and the appearance of meconium in the babys amniotic fluid which could then get into the babys mouth and lungs and cause an infection. If you know all the risks and do it anyways good luck to you and you baby.

  • oh good god please DON'T DO IT!!

    you'll probably end up running from both ends all day and evening.

    tried it with the second baby and it was the stupidest thing I've EVER done. I was pregnant for another week!!!

    check the risks for it!!! its so totally not worth it! would you like to sit on the toilet all night and then have to go to the hospital to labour it out for god knows how long? you'll be beyond exhausted, probably dehydrated and oh just don't do it. they don't let you eat while in labour (been there 5 times) - and you can't just get a drink of water either....
