  • DONT DO IT!!! It's nasty, and will only make you dehydrate from pooping your brains out! Let the baby come when it's ready.

  • you should read up on the risks first. personally i don't feel it's safe and would never try it. walking and sex are the only things proven to be healthy ways to get yourself going and even then they only work if your body is ready.

  • NO! It's NEVER safe. It can cause your baby to pass meconium in the womb. Baby will be here when it's ready. If you are concerned about being overdue, talk to your doctor.

  • Caster Oil is an old wives tale. It does however give you the poops so bad that the pushing may throw you in to labor, but that is the only way it works. And you still want to poop while in labor... not exactly what you need to be concentrating on at that time of delivery... LOL, right? You want to be as relaxed as possible not trying to keep your butt puckered up because your afraid you may let it fly across the room...covering everyone and everything in its path with the explosion... not funny! Been there done that...LOL! Ok! The baby will come on its own accord..and you can relax into what is natural and not be worried about anything but having that beautiful baby you have waited so very long for. Congratulation! I vote "No di-aster oil"! LOL!!

  • i wouldn't they say oregano helps effacement.. i can attest to it i ate pizza the entire pregnancy and my water broke at 37 weeks {full term} don't put yourself through the anguish you'll b dehydrated and if u go in labor you'll b so tired it would b hard to even get through it.
