Need to correct the above answer. At 37weeks your baby is not considered premature. At 37 weeks you are considered full-term!

AnswerAt 34 weeks pregnant, Your baby has not fully 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.

If you drink castor oil at 28weeks pregnant could you go into labor and will it harm the baby?

It is very unlikley (near on impossible) you will go into labour at 28 weeks, Castor oil stimulates the bowel and causes dihorreah which in late stages of pregnancy can trigger off contractions, At 28 weeks your baby isn't developed fully and will need intensive pediatric care to survive, there are also a percentage of babies that will not survive at 28 weeks as they are just not strong enough to fight off and infections they may attract . It is not wise to take castor oil at all during pregnancy, if you are struggling to go to the toilet and want to take it for that reason, try drinking lots of fruit juice and lots of fibre rich foods , that should help x

WILL DRINKING castor oil HELP BRING ON LABOR IF YOUR 36 weeks pregnant?

, I am 40 weeks in on the 30th so only two days to go and have only JUST thought and looked up castor oil, I would definitely read up on it because at 36 weeks your baby is not ready otherwise pregnancy would only be for 36 weeks. If there is something wrong the doctor will talk to you about your options and you might definitely likely look at ANOTHER way to bring on the labor, but castor oil... it is disgusting!!! took it yesterday and has not done anything for me other than make me vomit and feel tired... It may work for you but to be HONEST I really wouldn't be selfish and take the castor oil, your lil one will come when they are ready to come... You can cause fetal distress and more... and is not recommended unless you have spoken to your midwife... at the stage you are at I have heard of a product called Pre-Birth which you can get at any Health Pharmacy, once again look it up but it is used earlier on and later in your pregnancy your midwife can do what is known as a stretch and sweep to help you along, but just ask them about it at your next appointment... All the best :)

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?
