I had an appointment on Wednesday, I am now 39 weeks pregnant. I am 2cm dilated and my doctor broke my membranes in hopes of moving the process along because my body is doing everything for labor, just at a really slow rate and I cant handle it anymore. My feet swell to the point where I cant walk it hurts so bad, and the tops of my toes split because they are so big. I have anxiety and from being so uncomfortable and miserable and in so much pain, I am constantly having anxiety attacks which arent good for my little guy in my belly. So because of all of the stuff going on and I on the day of my appointment I only had 5 days left until my due date, she broke my membranes. She also gave me a castor oil recipe which i drank when I got home. It worked and I had contractions all night that slowly got stronger and closer together, and I had so much pain in my back, (my doctor said I am going to have back labor because my back kills me every time I have contractions..). They got to the point where they were waking me up all night in my sleep. When I got up in the morning they were still there and I was in so much pain from my back so I decided to take a bath and see if it would help. Well stupid me, it did help, too much. The tub relaxed my muscles so much that it set my contractions backwards. They got less painful and farther apart and now Ill just get a random one here and there.
The recipe I had for the castor oil drink was disgusting and I could not bring myself to drink it again, although my doctor said it was okay to and it would help. So I was wondering if any of you Mommas who used castor oil and arent going to lecture me on using it, have any suggestions for a recipe that didnt taste too bad? Thank you!
Oh and also, does anyone know if it tastes okay with chocolate ice cream, like mixed together as a drink? I wasnt sure if the chocolate taste would kinda cover the nasty castor oil taste. Thanks again :]
