Just curious if this castor oil may work. I know I don't have long now. But this is my first baby and im small soo all this weight I gained and stuff is so difficult to handle with my everyday things I do. Im 39 week and this pregnancy is hard to manage.

I think one of the dumbest things a girl can be capable of doing is drinking castor oil while pregnant. Not only is it harmful to you but is very harmful to your baby. You've waited 39 weeks so far but you can't wait another 1 or 2? Seriously? You should be taking this time to get your hospital bag packed, baby's room and house cleaned and organized and getting lots of rest (because trust me you will have lack of it soon)
Have patients before you end up doing more harm than good.

You better get a handle on your patience, my dear, because if you couldn't patiently wait until you went naturally, you're going to have one hell of a time being patient enough to be a parent.

Hopefully you caused no harm to your child by ingesting castor oil, as it is NOT recommended any more.

No it probably won't work if it did it'll just be because your baby was ready. Keep yourself hydrated and hopefully you don't cause too much stress for your baby because you took castor oil....
