What would you like to do?
It's not uncommon for some women to feel pretty uncomfortable when this far along in pregnancy and just want it over with. Most doctors will give up to 2 weeks past the due date to be on the safe side, so try to hang on for that extra 2 weeks. If nothing happens after that then talk to your doctor and I'm sure he'll induce labor. Take care of yourself and nix the castor oil! As miserable as you feel you want a healthy baby. There is an old way of bringing on labor and it's safe and it's lightly scrubbing the kitchen floor! No kidding! Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. DON'T ingest anything to bring on your baby. An early Congratulations! Answer the baby will come when it's ready to come all caster oil will do is give you a bad case of diarreha

Thanks for the feedback!
If you are 35 weeks' pregnant and 1 cm dilated and about 40 percent effaced and having strong contractions would taking castor oil help move things along?
At 35 weeks why would you want to hurry things along? You will birth a preemie with complications if you deliver now. It is unsafe to induce or encourage labor before 39 weeks… unless you have specific medical complications that make continuing the pregnancy unsafe.
Need to correct the above answer. At 37weeks your baby is not considered premature. At 37 weeks you are considered full-term! At 34 weeks pregnant, Your baby has not full…y developed his/her lungs. That will not be developed til 37 weeks and will still be considered premature at that age. If your just tired of being pregnant, as alot of us probably were, You just have to wait it out. That's the best thing to do, no matter how tired you are. your doctors will let you know if your in trouble and they will do what they have to do.
You are 36 weeks and been contracting now since 31 weekswas in labor at 31 do you think castor oil will work for me doc says its safe to have baby now i am tired of hurting what would you do?
Answer I tried that with my first child. I don't suggest it. I didn't go into labor, but I crapped myself silly! Try pinching your nipples, or getting your …man to do it. That releases hormones into your system that will trigger labor. I'm not saying it will work every time, but that's how I induced my labor with my last child.
Castor oil is really not recommended to try and induce labour. It often causes vomiting and diarrhea, which isn't something you want during labour. It is also proven not to be… effective at inducing labour. Really, the best thing to do is wait for your body to go into labour naturally. If your body is not already in labour, then there is a reason for that, and messing with it isn't a good idea. I know many many women that have taken castor oil to induce their labors (around their due dates of course) and not only did they never have a problem BUT, they also started having contractions anywhere between 2-4 hours later with a baby following shortly there after. Also, I'm 9 1/2 months pregnant now, and every doctor that I've seen as well as my mother (who has been an RN for 26yrs) has told me that if I want to try castor oil "Go ahead". It can not and will not do any harm except cause cramping. It's your decision. Please do not try to induce your own labor with castor oil. It will cause increased cramping and uncomfortableness for you and not worth it. When the time is right, the baby will come. Do not rush it, take this time to rest and prepare yourself for the baby. My sister is an OBGYN. She said that this is an absolute idiotic thing for a woman to do.
Answer yes it will put u in labor but ask your doctor first good luck
Answer i took castor oil 2 days ago it didnt work though take 3 tablespoons with orange juice be prepared to go to the toilet though it may or may not work it did… for my neighbour but not for me mores the pity..... im 38 weeks 3 days
If you aren't yet 37 weeks (full term) and having labor symptoms, you need to contact your Doctor!
You are 39 weeks pregnant 1cm dialated and 50 effaced you are so tired and ready to have this baby already the doctor said his head is down in the right position and you would like to try castor oil?
Caster oil can be a VERY uncomfortable way to begin labor. It is a laxative with powerful capabilities. I myself have used it 2x (have 4 children) and it honestly never …worked to get the babies out- just gave me the runs and major cramping. personally I would rather wait to birth, than wait to birth with diharrea. Other ways to get things moving along can be sex (if you are comfortable to do it), spicy food, long gentle walks, meditating, rest, or massage. You are close and I know at this point- you just want it all over. But soon enough- it will be. Hand in there!
Iv been having unprotected sex for weeks now you have been taking bc but late everytime im suppose to get your period 3 days later already plus you have noticed a little weight gain can you be pregnan?
You can still get pregnant while taking the pill correctly... it's rare, but it can happen. If you are NOT taking it correctly... aka missing pills or taking them late... then… you can absolutely get pregnant. Take a pregnancy test... if you ARE pregnant, you will want to stop taking the birth control pills for the health of the baby.
You are 34weeks and 2 days and you really want this baby out what can you. do Will castor oil work for you?
Castor oil will have no effect in reasonable quantities and, like anything else you overdo, can be dangerous in very high quantities. Have a chat with your OB/GYN and se…e what she says about this. They tend not to like inducing labor unless there's a medically needful reason for it, as it does increase the overall risk factors, for you and your child. But emotional factors do apply. Please don't try self-inducing. This method has so many bad results.
Yes, castor oil is dangerous as it can 1. trigger labour 2. cause the baby to have a bowel movement before birth which can be potential fatal. I was super overdue an…d looked into castor oil as a way to help things along the doctor said absolutely not.
At 31 weeks pregnant can you take castor oil to make your baby come out faster and if you do what will happen to him?
If you care for the health of your baby you really, really, shouldn't do anything to try to make it come out faster. At 31 the baby will probably survive, but it will st…ill be considered premature, and that's a bad start in life.
Purposely tanning is never a good idea--it increases the risk of skin cancer, prematurely ages skin, and can cause painful burns. Sunblock should be worn whenever your skin is… exposed to the sun for long periods of time. If you insist on tanning, it's probably better to wait until 6 weeks, when your hormone levels have all returned to normal. This decreases the risk of melasma, dark patchy staining of the face
it takes 3-4 sim days
39 wks with baby at plus 3 station 90 percent thinned out and 4 centimeters no real contractions will labor start soon if not what should I try castor oil I tried with another birth nada happened?
Why would you try to speed up a birth that isn't even past the due date yet? Let nature take it's course...you will go into labor when the baby and your body are re…ady. Trying to speed things up is unnecessary and, depending on what you try, can be dangerous. And for God's sake, don't drink castor oil. Not only will it not speed up/induce labor, but you'll be on the toilet in horrible pain for hours. The baby doesn't need to have you depleting his/her nutrients. I remember being that far along and wondering (even tho I wasn't overdue) if I was going to be pregnant forever. The fact is that you won't be.
No, because if you drink Castor Oil during an early development stage you may harm the baby .The harm happens because drinking Castor Oil causes diarrhea Which may cause your …baby to have a bowl movement in the womb.
When you have your baby , your body is changing . If you live north, you should try some vitamin D, and Vitamin b-12 complex. This will also help with your energy level.
