That is an old wives tale. No you will not go into labor but you will have some clean bowels when you do make it to the delivery room. Why do you want to go into labor 4 weeks early? You do realize that is way too soon for the child to be fully developed.

Maybe. You could also potentially kill your baby though... and 36 weeks is too early to willingly go into labor. Is it worth it to have your pregnancy over to possibly have a dead baby?

Sorry to be so blunt, but I hate the 'castor oil posts' with a passion.
