well when you are having contractions and not braxton hicks the baby will be really still, but my doctor has never said anything about castor oil being harmful in any way for the baby actually he recommended it to me, now some people say that their doctor told them not to use it. when i did use it i went into labor 5 hours after taking it.

As some Dr's may still recommend caster oil I strongly encourage you to read up on it first. I've heard so many bad stories with it and the fact it can cause meconium in the Baby's lungs isn't worth the risk to me just to jump start labour.

Castor oil is a no no!  Unless you like diahrea severe stomach cramps and dehydration.  Its not a good idea at all.  I would call ur dr with ur symptoms they may want to check u.  Good luck.

Try self stimulation I know thats a little tmi but orgasims help with contractions, you can also bounce around a little I did caster oil with my daughter and she was fine but really that is a judgement call on you I actually didn't know the risk at the time. Good luck!!!!

I had really bad contractions that were NOT 5 min apart starting at 3am on thursday and they continued all that day and the next night and I went to the hospital on friday morning at 730 am still with inconsistant contractions and I was 4 to 5 cm dilated and gave birth at 2:38pm... I would go get checked. But in mean time try to breathe through them in through ur nose and out ur mouth, Good Luck!!!

My best advice is walk. Walk a lot!!! Or use a birthing ball and bounce!! My friend had the same kinda thing happen to her, but refused to go in. Instead we walked for like 3 hours in hopes to make the contractions stronger and closer. It didn't but I convinced her to go get checked out anyways. She was a 7 when they checked her!!! So walk, walk, walk!!!

Im goin to give u an advice that worked for me on my last two pregnancues, i have three  kids n my last one on the way! If u r in real labor, drink cummin tea its a spice, boil it in water n drink it as hot as u can, just dont burn urself, ut helps ur cervix to dilate faster, hope it helps
