I attempted it nd it just gave me BM nd a few cramps...im 39+2 nd ill be givin it a next shot this weekend!
If your water breaks you have to go to the hospital you can get an infection nd baby
I took 2 tbsp and it didn't make me go to the bathroom but once and that was 5 hrs after taking it then a couple hours after that my water broke. But I continued doing stuff that I normally would do. Didn't really do much to me other than thin me out
One last question- should I plan to stay home all day the day I take it? Are you really stuck to the toilet all day?
Thanks guys, very useful!! I'll be 39+2 when I take it and last time I got checked I was only 1cm and still quite tight cervix :-/ Not sure if it'll have any effect, we shall see!!
There's a great blog on liveyourlife.net and it has measurements and some cool facts about her experience with castor oil. I plan to use it tomorrow after my membrane sweep.
I've taken it the past three days in a row and not much happened for me.. I got diarrhea the third time I took it (probably because that's when I took the greatest amount). It did cause contractions, though.
I didn't mix it with anything... Just to get it over with quick, I took it like a shot. I didn't measure too distinctly, but I probably took about 2 tablespoons the first two times and double that the third time.
I took 1.5 tablespoons mixed with orange juice didn't taste bad at all. Took it at 9am. Got diarrhea (but that is also a sign of labor). I had her the next morning at 6:23am. I did have contractions prior to taking the oil. But I don't know if I was dilated at all or not. The doctor never checked. I was 39 weeks and 2 days. I have heard up to 2 tablespoons.
