just a few helpful tips for those thinking of using the castor oil method:
-they say to mix with orange juice, GROSS
if you have a hard time getting that down mix it with strawberry banana V8 fruit juice. it was so much easy to swallow, when i mixed it with the V8 i downed it all in one sitting, where with the orange juice i had to keep coming back to it.
-it takes 2-6 hours for the castor oil symptoms to start showing up, and in most cases it takes 8-24 hours for the labor to begin, so dont be discouraged that nothing happens right away.
-WALK WALK WALK, once you start feeling the cramps, be as active as you can.
-take on an empty stomach, works way better and you dont have to run to the bathroom as much.
-drink plenty of water once the symptoms start to show up, it's very easy to get dehydrated.
hope this helped!(:
**and you do not have to be dilated at all for this to work, i wasnt.
but castor oil DOES NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE. it's not a miracle solution to bring out your baby, everyones body takes things differently.
