My sister took a shot glass and a half of castor oil 2days before she had my niece. She claims it worked but she was also already 40wks so I'm not sure if I should try it or not. I'm 37wks 6days and dilated 1cm on Monday but I'm dying of the pressure my baby girl is putting on my Cervix. So anyway, has anyone heard good things with Castor oil???
I took castor oil with my son at 37 weeks and I went into labor but I have drank that nasty stuff twice with this pregnancy and it has done nothing..I think it only works if your baby is ready to come..I wouldn't try it unless you speak with your doc first
Castor oil can work but the amount you take to get affects depends on your body and your baby. For instance, I took 2 oz of castor oil and it started the contractions but that's it no dilation and a little effacement and the contractions were horrible and lasted for 2 days straight . So I waited another week and a half and like a dummy I took 4 oz it started the contractions again but this time I started to dilate. so the amount differs from person to person it is a good way to start labor but that's just it to start labor your body and baby has to be ready to finish labor so it can start labor and then you are in pain for days and go right back to where you started best way to go is to walk and I mean walk like at least 2 miles then do the castor oil when I did the castor oil I was not walking or anything but once the castor gave me that boost and I started walking things started to process
