Every One Talks About Castor Oil My Sister Tried

Okay so I see all this talk about taking castor oil. My sister took mineral oil and then castor oil (seperate times i think) each 1 oz bottle mixed with OJ. She was 37 weeks and she had the baby the next day! Not sure if it worked, but baby was healthy!

what I mean is I can't say for sure if it was the mineral/castor oil that did it or she was going to go into labor anyway.

I took 2tbs blended with chocolate ice cream, an egg, and some milk and my contactions started an hour later. my son was born within 12 hours. I've heard that it only works however if your body is ready to deliver. I was told that if I hadn't taken the oil, I would have gone into labor within 3-5 days. It just sorta sped things up. And FYI- the egg helps decrease the unpleasant side-effects of the oil!

isn't it dangerous to ingest raw eggs? Did you try castor oil or the mineral oil?

AlissaF, I am concerned about the raw egg, too. I think that is a no-no for pregnant woman- one of those ford-born disease problems, right? I also wouldn't try to indue at 37 weeks. I understand the desire, but I wouldn't try it until 40 weeks.

my sister was dumb looking back now! She is lucky her baby was fine. I don't know why she did it so early.
