Chrissy: I'm NOT American and castor oil is dangerous. It can cause undue stress to the baby. It's not recommended to take it anymore. Yes it was about 15 years ago though.

I wish I read this with my first he was 6 days late and I had to be induced. Something I don't wish on any woman ;)

I took primrose oil capsules in the last few weeks of my pregnancy and I shoved one capsule "up there" in the evenings. I know it sounds gross but the oil is good for softening your cervix which helps it dilate and prepare it for labor.

I tried everything the doctor's suggested. I was HUGE and overdue 5 days. The thing that finally did it was intercourse! I went into labor almost immediately!

Walk walk walk and DANCE , it worked for me. Do not use anything. Just move a lot. And as I know as long as the baby is healthy. With enough water and healthy placenta. So u r good. Inside is better than outside.

I went on 30 minute walks everyday with my husband and dogs. We also had alot of sex to help induce labor. :) My baby was a week late but I was dilated 5cm so I was already half way there and labor went faster!

How is castor oil dangerous? I didn't get the runs and worked for most women in my family and in my boyfriend's family. I think maybe some people are afraid to try things that aren't all American? Anyway, I hope baby came by now! Good luck!

Don't do the castor oil. It's dangerous and will only give you the runs.

I would suggest going for a nice long walk and then plan a really nice meal. Mine decided that when I had plans was the best tie to arrive.

Other than that you just have to wait. The baby will come when it's ready. Your due date can be a couple of weeks out as well.
