ok girls like I said b4 my doc stripped my membranes yesterday and I lost my mucous plug an hour afterwards. I had horrible contractions last night until 10pm and then they just went away. Today I have cleaned my whoooooooooooooooollllle house top to bottom, walked and walked and walked some more, and I've eaten a whole pineapple. lol I am debating taking castor oil. i have gotten approval from my doctor to do anything I can to get my labor going. does castor oil really work? i am planning on taking a hot bath as well and do some accupressure, and also go to the store. the only thing I can't do is have sex bc my doc doesnt want to risk an infection since I have lost my plug. you girls got any ideas? and no negativity please. thanks :)Answer Question

Wait. The baby will come when he/she is ready. Did you ask your doctor to break your water. That made me go into labor and have my DD. Castro oil will just give you the shits that is all.

black or blue cohosh is not recommended anymore, DO NOT use that. Bad advice.

Castor oil will make you feel bad and won't make labor come. Babies come when they are ready. You are going to wear yourself out. Go rent some movies, put your feet up and relax.
