For starters, everyone who is going to judge me and complain and yell at me for using castor oil can keep their mouth shut and not waste their time because Ive heard enough of it and its not your problem or business.
I was wondering for all of you who HAVE used Castor oil to induce labor and it worked, what the least unappealing recipe was. I took it once already, and the recipe was 2oz orange juiice, 2oz castor oil, and 1 scoop of vanilla icecream. The oil worked and within hours I was having horrible contractions in my back and stomach. However, I had the bright idea to take a warm bath which calmed the contractions before they put me into full labor. I am taking the drink again tonight, but that recipe didnt taste all that great and I was wondering what anyone else used for a recipe with it.
I am 40+ weeks, between 2 and 3cm dilated, 80+% efaced, and in labor, it just isnt moving quick enough for them to keep me in the hospital so my midwife suggested the drink again.
She stripped my membranes before I did the drink last time, and she stripped them again today, so I am hoping if I avoid the bath this time that I will get to see my baby boy soon :]
So any successful stories of castor oil or and decent recipes are very much appreciated and welcomed :]
Any annoying, know it all, critcizing, judging, comments, will be ignored and are not needed.
