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! the baby will come when it's ready to come all

caster oil will do is give you a bad case of diarreha
