Still no baby!! :(
I went in and seen my obgyn. I am still not dialating and i have been having regular contractions. He says even though these ones are pretty intense they get worse. He said he would discuss being induced at my next appoitment on the 19th. I'm pretty irritated!

I drank about 2 oz of castor oil a little bit at a time. It didn't help. I've also been using even primrose. Nothing is helping... He'll come when he wants..

Castor oil is a big no no. It can cause both mum and baby to have loose bowels which isn't good for bub while inside as the meconium is toxic for them to swollow.

I already used a little castor oil. It didn't cause me to have loose bowels. I only went once

I would advise against taking anymore. Have you told your ob that you have used it? She may want to do another check up. Just because you didn't suffer loose bowels doesn't mean baby hasn't

Lots of water and lots of walking...I was in the same situation as u...having really bad contractions and not dilating...when they sent me home I walked all day and drank water all day had my baby @ 4:14 the next morning...by the time I got to the hospital again I was already @ an 8 :) so try that...and apparently I wasn't dilating like I was suppose to because I was a little dehydrated

Have they done an ultrasound to check your fluid and postion of the baby? I'm in the same boat but doctor is inducing on the 19th.

They took the stuff out of the caster oil that helped send you in to labour as people was having premature baby's so that took it out case it wasn't safe..shame for the ladies that use it right and at the right time x x I hope baby comes soon love xx
