My dr recomended it but my friends stories scared the hell out of me, the idea of having explosive direah on the table didnt sound to pleasent. I had made the choice to do it on the combinded issues of constiaption and being at my due date, well now past. It was recomended but as my doula had said not until 40 weeks at the earliest, my dr said since he believes im a bit further ahead a week ago would have been fine. Your opinion is yours. I cant change it your entitled to it.

Surprisingly no. Only went to the bathroom about 3 or 4 times.. so not to bad, probably because i didnt take the dose the back of the bottle says.

No dilation contractions arent doing anything though he told me next week he will be doing induction methods, so he told me to do evening primrose oil, nipple stimulation, accupressure, and orgasm. a few other things that i told him heck no too, he also said since the castor oil didnt work but got me to go he wouldnt recommend doing it again he was worried about it causing vomiting a 2nd time around. So fair enough, im glad im not constipated anymore.

Did he explain how to do nipple stimulation correctly? Because you can over stimulate and hate life. Have you been walking?

I definitely recommend walking, too. When I got to be like 39 weeks, I started walking circuits around the mall with my ex. (It was super cold out - plus I could stop and get a snack very easily :lol:)

Been walking about a mile a day since i was 37 weeks. ( i lost my lisence and need to get out of the house, i get it back monday though!) And he kinda did, but my doula gave me very very clear directions. it didnt start anything last night, i think im just going to keep trying over and over every night. He did say yesterday that next week we will do a balloon thing if theres no progression but i dont want that. :(.

this is true! its not the oil itself that causes the baby to pass its first bm, it actually doesnt cross the placenta, its the extreme bowel contractions that can stress the baby out and cause him or her to have a bm. my midwife uses it to induce labor for over due moms.
