Castor oil to help things along...**Update**

So I am due in about 2 weeks...but I am READY to get this kid out. I am sooooooooo tempted to use Castor Oil...(I have a bottle in my cabinet) I have used it 2 times before and it has worked BOTH times...I know a LOT of people are against using it, but I have never had an issue with it. I always just make sure I take plenty of fluids in the day before take the oil and the day I actually TAKE the oil.

Ugh I am so mixed...part of me REALLY wants to take it...and part of me is too scared of all the judgement.

What do you think? Have you ever used it? If so did it work?



**Update**

So I have decided NOT to take the oil. I've been contemplating it...and something is just telling me not to do it, so I'm not. I'll just have to try some other safer ways to help things along...I think a more fun method would be...SEX with DH =-)

Oh well...Wish me luck ladies!

I tried it and it didn't work. What's wrong with trying it?

I would never use it. It's dangerous. Stop bein selfish and wait for baby to one when it's ready. Do other things like walkin or sex to simulate labor.

Well I know that if baby isn't ready it wont work. I know the SAFE way to take it...and I am taking all precautions that I can.

And Yes I guess since I've taken it twice before and it worked both times...I DO believe in that "Crap".

Someone suggested I use it on here, and I didn't once I found all the dangerous things it could cause.

I had my baby 5 days late though lol.

If being a stubborn, opinionated, educated, headstrong, beautiful woman makes me a b!tch, so be it.

How am I being selfish? It wont work unless the baby is truly ready to come...nothing will. And how is it dangerous? There is nothing that proves it makes the baby poo while in utero...actually there is more to disprove that...and as long as I keep drinking water and staying hydrated... dehydration will NOT be an issue.

Don't use castor oil. It doesn't even work. Have sex, walk around or just wait. You're not even due yet.

So why use it at all if you know it won't work if the baby ain't ready ? Just to give your self the craps
