Castor Oil

Hey- since im 6 days over I think I'm ready to give castor oil a try but I was wondering if any of you had tried it. My mom says it will indefinatly give me the s**ts in her own words lol.

You take 2 tablespoons right???

Re: Castor Oil

How very daring of you Denise!!! I just had a nice long bath and gave myself a pedicure and now I feel all refreshed, otherwise I would have read your post sooner!
I also was thinking of trying this as my Mom said she did with my brother. She took a couple tablespoons mixed with O.J. and she said the next day she went into labour.
Now though they don't suggest it because it causes the baby to have a bowel movement in utero and they will ingest it causing risks to the baby's health.
I read your post on the April Board as well and think maybe it's a good idea to stick to the one teaspoon!
Good luck girl.... may your little one bless you soon!

Re: Castor Oil

I have heard different things about castor oil. It has worked for some and not for others. Some say it causes the baby to have a bowel movement in the womb. I know it worked for my sil but it did not work for me, although my baby did not have a bowel movement until after birth. I know it did give me some great contractions for about a day and a half. I only had the s"""s twice and it wasnt that bad as some people say it is. the only thing it might've done was make me dialate a little more but hopefully it will work for you since you are overdue. I was 38 weeks when I tried it. Keep us posted and take care!!!! Good luck- maybe the next time we hear from you you will have had a beautiful baby!!!
