okay so I am 36 weeks... I am due May 22nd. Do you think that if I were to try the Castor Oil that everything would turn out fine for my baby? The doctor has told me that he believes that my baby is already 6 1/2 lbs... What do you think ???

No, there is a reason that gestation is 40 weeks...your baby is still developing. It's not the weight I would worry about it's the development of the lungs. Castor oil has really worked from some people but has been discouraged BECAUSE it can cause your baby to poop, meconium (first baby poo) in the amniotic fluid can be dangerous to your new born...you are risking a lot to try anything at this point in your pregnancy. Part of the joy of seeing your baby is going through the part that you just SO want to be over. Seriously don't use castor oil wait till you are 39 weeks along and ask to be induced by your dr. if you don't want to wait.

What if your doctor wont induce labor what are any ways to safely self induce labor?? If any.

Intercourse because Semen contains a high concentration of a substance called prostglandins. This chemical helps stimulate contractions of the uterus. Also, stimulation of the nipples...because the same synthetic drug dr. use oxytocin to induce labor is a hormone naturally released by your own body...oxytocin causes the uterus to contract.
