I took castor oil at 6:00pm it is now 8:45pm and I have gone to the bathroom once kinda feel like I have the stomach flu other then that nothing really does this mean it's not going to work? Also I haven't had any BH contractions so I don't know what to look for any suggestions? Just want someone to talk too ;)

It could just be that the castor oil is upseting your stomach (it is kinda gross) but I never had castor oil work for me or any of my friends. Labor for me has always involved feeling kinda funny and restless at first, than a dull backache that spreads to my stomach. Some people say it starts like menstrual cramping and gets worse for them. Sadly you may have to keep waiting, exactly where I am at also! Don't you wish there was a magic light that went on to say that you were done and could now go to the hospital!

I'm 40 weeks plus 4 days and I tell you I'm about to lose it! I feel like I have the flu, you know that achy feeling your body gets? I'm so tired but I can't sleep. I can't stop thinking! I'm about to freak out. I haven't had a good nights sleep since I went pa__sed my due date. I've tried everything to "naturally" induce labor. I even tried running down the block(or rather waddling really fast) all that did was make my lungs burn. Right now I'm 1-2 cm dilated and 80% effaced. It's my first baby so i don't know what to expect! I've been having braxton hicks like crazy. I have a non stress test and an ultrasound on Thursday to see how baby is doing. If I don't have him by thursday there going to schedule an inducement. I wish they would just do it that day. I hate how they make you wait! Whats the point in having a f*****g due date?
