Castor oil at 40 weeks?

Lauren - posted on 10/29/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




Okay, I'm 40 weeks pregnant and still not dilated. My baby is almost 8 pounds and very healthy, but after doing so well this entire pregnancy I don't know how much more I can take. My husband bought castor oil recently and wants me to try a teaspoon of it to see if it will help induce labor. I have read some success stories and some where it didn't do much at all, but am looking to get a little more advice or personal feedback about it. Please help!

I took it at my Dr.'s suggestion. He swept my membranes and told me to take some. Tbh it didn't work for me. Although if this is a route you plan on taking I would suggest talking to your obgyn first.
