How Much Castor Oil Is To Much

Ok I know that taking castor oil can be somewhat bad. For many years women have been doing this. Now what scares me is that cramping that I keep reading about. It can be really painful and then nothing happens. I also read taking 2oz with OJ or pop and help take away the taste of the oil. I did try it a few weeks ago with OJ, but only to see what it taste like. Not very good. Now I'm really wanting this baby to come so that i can get to Ohio to be with my mom. I'll try just about anything once. I am doing the primrose everyday. I also started walking again but not long enough to do anything really just to get out of the house. I'm getting a ultrasound tomorrow for fluid around the baby may be low. My Dr. said that may be why I can't breath. I want my baby to be heathly but I can't take it anymore. If you have anything besides tring castor oil I'll try it. and s_x is out because he won't go

missycc4 - February 28

Have you tried raspberry tea or fresh pineapple? Not to sound too gross, you dont have to have s_x. It is the s____n that does the trick. You can try oral s_x on your husband.

I did the tea but stopped after the first box. I can't get him to do anything with me. we don't even sleep together right now. I sleep in the living room and him in the bedroom so. he stays up later and I'm lucky if I can stay up until 11:00. I have to get up at 6am to get my kids off to school plus I don't sleep much at night now anyway. I have to get a nap everyday or I can't get through the day. About the pineapple I hear you have to eat a lot of it to get it to work.

Ok update, Mom is doing well. her Dr. gave her the ok to come down which is great for she has never ben to Flordia be4. I'm still having a problem breathing and I called my Dr today about it and still won't do anything. I know if we just had this baby that the breathing thing would go away. The baby is weighing in at 8lbs 6oz and she is going to let me go until the 24th. I know I posted this somewhere else but can't remember were. well anyway I hope I go into labor soon. I can't get anybigger. I'm already 180 on a 5'4 frame. and all front. I talked to the husband on the phone and asked him one more time about the s_x thing and he said we would talk about it when he got home. Watch that will be the one thing that works out of everything I've tried. Wich me luck and Good LUck to all of you.

castor oil isn't a good option in my doctors eyes. It has the same effect on the baby as it does you and you dont want meconium being swallowed by your baby. Try doing some nipple stimulation to get your contractions going. Even if it just gives you regular BH contractions, it will help your cervix get going and hopefully get the real contractions going and labor.

Well I'm NOT going to do the oil. I see my Dr. Wednesday and I'm going to ask her to take the baby. So we'll see.

I don't know how the "oral s_x" will help.....the s____n sitting on the cervix is what helps the cervix to ripen....just like when they induce and stick the pills in your cervix..they don't have you swallow them..swallowing s____n isn't going to do anything for you.


Tammy276 - March 4

and you are right about the pineapple thing as well. You would have to eat like 3 whole pineapples a day for anything to happen, and I don't think anyone would be able to do that without being sick to their stomache.


SaraH - March 5

Tammy is right. The seamen needs to be in the v____a and on the cervix --swallowing it isn't going to help, and while pineapple might help you'd have to eat a truck load of it for it to work.

I have tried the castor oil and it did not work, it does make you have contractions but they are not enough to do anything. I have also tried the Raspberry Tea and it did not work, the Sage Oil and Almond Oil does not work either. The baby is just going to have to come when he is ready. I will be 39 weeks on Thursday and they are inducing me on that day. He weighed 8 1/2 lbs. last Tuesday. I weighed 115 before I got pregnant and now I weigh 156 and it is every bit in my belly. I think if my skin stretches anymore it is going to bust open around my belly b___ton. but I only have 3 days to go! GL to you though! hopefully your dr. will induce you soon!


missycc4 - March 5

I'm still here. I see my Dr Wednesday and I will be asking her to induce me then. I can't take the pain and the swelling in my feet. I didn't do the oil. I'm lucky if I get 4 hours a sleep a night. I go to bed at 11:00. I'm up at 6:45am everymorning. so I just want to sleep. my mom is coming and will be here Friday. so I'll have her to help Thank God. Well Good Luck to all

Again Tammy, you know it all!!!


Tammy276 - March 6

candaceann, what is your problem anyway?


Tammy276 - March 6

oh, and sorry, I got you mixed up w/ someone else on here, I didn't mean to rant about the whole "food" thing and "in your own words" thing, so my apology's, please ignore that.


candaceann1 - March 6

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.
