Considering I never efaced or dialated with my last pregnancy, and needed an emergency c-section and almost died, yes I feel that these all help. I'm sorry if you dont agree with me drinking tea and eating pineapple rather than being cut open and dying. Thats my choice not yours. My doctor did not think I was going to dialate. So were pretty d__n happy. But thanks for wishing death on me, I hope everything goes well for you too.

sorry honey, but I never wished death on you, and incase you didn't read my post, I thought you were someone else from the first trimester board, and I apologized as part of what I said I was quoting what she had said to me. YOu know, it could be you are dilating because this is your second pregnancy and most often, things move along a bit quicker than the first...if you want to try all these things, thats your choice....I'm just saying that the tea doesn't cause you to dilate, it helps the cervix thin out and strengthens the uterus...do some research on it.

I never said I was drinking the tea just to dialate. I NEVER efaced, thinned, or dialate before on my own. Yes, the tea is to help thin my cervix and to strenghten my uterus considering I am hoping to have a successful VBAC this time. Something is helping me and I dont care what it is as long as it helps and keeps me off that operating table.

And Tammy, you have NEVER tried any of these methods, but yet your an expert on the subject. Why are you even responding? Again, you know it all! You dont really answer peoples questions based on experience or fact. You just throw in your 2 cents and opinions. But yet you dont think that anyone else should have an opinion. Your giving me cramps. I'm done with this website. If I have a question, ill call my doctor who is QUALIFIED to answer them.

LOOKS LIKE I WALKED INTO A FORUM WITH LOTS OF TENSION IN IT, I AM PREGNANT WITH MY THIRD CHILD. MY LAST PREGNANCY I HAD TO HAVE MY APPENDIX REMOVED AT 30 WEEKS, IT SUCKED, BUT BY WEEK 38 I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN, (DIALATED AT A 4 FOR 8 WEEKS ALREADY) WOUND STILL HADN'T CLOSED, SO I TRIED EVERYTHING, PINEAPPLE, CASTOR OIL MORE THAN ONCE, I USED PRIMROSE OIL, I STARTED TAKING THAT AT 36 WEEKS, IT IS SUPPOSE TO HELP EASE LABOR, AT 38 WEEKS YOU CAN PUT THE CAPSULE AS CLOSE TO YOUR CERVIX AS YOU CAN, IT REALLY REALLY HELPED WITH LABOR PAINS, I TRIED EVERYTHING, NONE OF IT WORKED, BABY COMES WHEN IT WANTS TO COME, CASTOR OIL JUST CAUSES YOUR BOWELS TO HAVE CONTRACTIONS, WHICH CAN CAUSE YOUR UTERUS TO DO THE SAME, (MOST OF THE TIME TURNS INTO FALSE LABOR) BUT WHAT PUT ME INTO LABOR WAS.... AT BATH AND BODY WORKS, THEY HAVE A MASSAGE BALL, IT IS LIKE A BIG MARBLE INCLOSED IN A CASE, FEELS GOOD, RELAXES YOU, AND I WAS IN LABOR JUST A FEW HOURS LATER... GOOD LUCK LADIES

candaceann, I never said I was an expert on anything, but I have done some research on stuff and will share with others what I know. The fact of the matter is, you can try whatever you want to try, and its not going to work if your body is not ready for it......there is no "sure" way to make yourself efface, dilate, go into labor whatever.
