A concern mom - December 13

I got two different due dates 1st dec 23 and 2nd feb 13 but hes already 4lbs and 1 and half oz as of last tuesday. I been having concatractions off and on. And Its hard to walk or do anything at this point. I did take it with my daughter cause they gave me two different dates with her. But this is a boy so I didnt know if I should and when I should Please let me know. Thanks

Wow...did the same doc give you those due dates? they are two months different..thats weird...I dont think so...If you read some of the other posts castor oil can give you a very bad reaction...and do nothing to bring on labor...besides if your really not due until feb 13th you dont want to be rushing things along right now...the doc here that I work for said she took it..it didnt work for her just made her sick..it can be bad and cause infection due to the fact that it does not only persuade your bowel movements to move but also the baby's...not a good idea in general..I would wait it out...the longer the baby is in there usually the better..unless it goes way over...I know how you feel, I'm due early/mid April and ready...but would rather wait it out for a healthy baby...good luck

It was two different doc. that gave me theses dates. I keep crampping and having contractions off and on and it hurts. Thats why I am not sure what to do.

I would try to get to a specialist...If the baby is only guesstamated at 4 lbs...its not time yet...hold out and dont try to bring it on...keep in contact with a doctor...in my opinion they should be giving you something to stop labor and keep you on bed rest...good luck and keep me informed.
