Re: I want to hear your experience with castor oil

I did it with DS2. I took castor oil (3 oz) at 2 pm. had some bowel movements within an hour (wasnt awful, was just like taking any other laxative IMO) I felt completely normal until I started contractions at 8pm. delivered ds2 at just after 12 am.

Oh and my midwife told me to take it because at 36weeks YDS was measuring 9lbs so she told me to take it 37 weeks.

Re: I want to hear your experience with castor oil

Castor oil causes diarrhea which dehydrates you. The dehydration is what causes contractions. When I worked in L & D we had lots of mamas that came in after taking castor oil with contractions. We sent most home since they weren't in true labor. A little bit of fluid and most stopped contracting pretty soon. Plus, if it does happen to work for you and if you progress quickly think of the fun diarrhea while pushing :-( ick!

Made me sick. Did not induce labor. Meconoum in the fluid when she was born (was told it *could* have been caused by the castor oil. I don't suggest it.

Apologizing in advance for iPhone typos/autocorrect
