  • I drank Castor Oil to induce my labor. I wasn't even dialated and two days later I had my baby. She was nine days early. It's the nasiest thing I have ever done. It tastes disgusting and I actually threw up some. I mixed it with orange juice and it helped to disguise the taste some. Good Luck and Congrats!

  • Omg, I would totally not take the Castor oil then ROFL! Don't worry, your baby will come when s/he is ready.

  • Sex worked for both my sons. And of course walking. They also make this balm that you can order online. You rub it on your belly. it is suppose to have all the natural herbs in it that induce labor. I've also heard nipple stimulation works. Good Luck!

  • i knew someone who used castor oil and she was in labor for 36 hours!

    if you want to induce - schedule it for your due date and if you deliver b4 then perfect - if not then induce

  • castor oil can cause your baby to have a BM and " If the baby then inhales the contaminated fluid, respiratory problems may occur. When infants take meconium into their lungs during or before delivery, it is called Meconium Aspiration Syndrome (MAS)."
    the BM before birth is called Meconium ...
