I know what your thinking....another crazy girl desperate to induce labor before her due date!!! While I wouldn't be upset if I did have this LO in the next few days(She is currently measuring well over 8lbs and her BPP score was 10) it is actually for the real reason castor oil is used!
I haven't had a BM in 5 days and am getting really uncomfortable! I've tried my usual "go-to's" caffeine, juice, spicy foods, green veggies and more water, but nothing is really working. I'm getting more and more uncomfortable and then i'm also stressing out about it being so close to my due date and being "bound up" when i go into labor(the embarrassment factor).
So i was reading about castor oil and the side effects are diarrhea and vomiting.......I am hoping for the diarrhea part so I can start feeling better and "clean myself out" but I'm so afraid that I will get the vomiting, but still won't have a BM!!!
Any thoughts? Experiences? Thanks for listening....I know this is a little TMI!
