So is it a good idea? Or Bad idea?? and what are the pros and cons to taking it....

  • I don't recommend it, it will probably just make her gag or throw up... Tell her it's only a matter of time. Maybe you two get get together to help her time pass, make finishing touches in the nursery or go baby shopping. Take her on a long day a the mall and make sure she walks a lot. Maybe that would speed it up! :)

  • In my opinion, induction is child abuse (in non medical emergancies) If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. A healthy pregnancy can go 45 weeks or more and still pose no threat to mommy or baby. Tell her to have lots of sex (with ehr hubby with no condom) and so be patient.

  • Castor oil = bad....... its slimy, like swallowing vegetable oil and will give you the runs.
