castor oil to induce? who has done this

just curious how many mothers have tried this to induce labor? how fare along were you? did it work for you? talked to my midwife about it, she said it was up to me if i wanted to try it bein am 41 weeks. Just want to hear from other moms, please no bashing, am just asking! have tried everything else in the book, to try to get labor started!!! Baby is looking big, so they want to induce next week, just was hoping i did not have to get induced. I know all the risks about it, so once again no bashing, thank you.

  • You ARE going to get bashed.  And from what I've read on here, the ones who have been brave enough to say that they have tried it just ended up extremely sick with no labor.

  • All it will do is make you sick and poop. Have sex and walk. Try to have as many orgasms as you can. It's loads more fun than sitting on the toiler all day, and much more likely to work.

  • I was a few days til my due date and drank a whole bottle. I find better ways to induce are enemas, lots of sex and EPO on the cervix. There are massages that can be done on pressure points as well. Keeps me posted!

  • Oregano and Basil are thought to help start labor.  Here is the link for that.  http://www.maternitycorner.com/mcmag/articles/preg0007.html

  • You will be in pain, not because you will be in labor. It will be because your intestines will be cramping up. You will be miserable and pregnant
