  • I would wait longer. I had a 36 week baby and she was not fully ready yet. There were problems with her lungs and her heart. Please wait until the baby comes naturally.

  • Never unless you want to poop uncontrollably for several hours. The op is correct that it is an old wives' tale.

  • just wait a month until your baby is ready!!!!!! Is it really that hard? Wouldnt you rather your baby be born healthy with fully developed lungs?

  • that is such an old wives tale.. we have all suffered thru our pregnancies.. i had to wait til almost 41 weeks.. because my son was due on the 4th of july... scheduled c-section but it had to be delayed because no one wanted to work on the holiday.. blah blah blah.. i could still walk my 5 miles, it was tough, but you just suck it up and deal...

  • Some believe that castor oil increases the chance that the baby will have a bowel movement in the womb, which is risky. Don't take it at all. Just let the baby come naturally.
