I took 2oz castor oil. And tbh it really wasn't that bad.
lets hope it really gets things going for me!!!!!


I had thought about waiting till sat and hoping the prodroming would stop, but I would really prefer not to have another night like last- sleepless for the most part. Baby- mama is tired! Hopefully tonight I'll be snuggled up with my hubby and our LO.

nothing to report. Still having strong but not quite frequent enough pressure waves. No side effects from the CO yet, but I am thinking about taking some more, or maybe dtd with dh. maybe both!

Good luck! Mine kicked in right away and was VERY unpleasant! I hope you don't have the same experience that I did

Yeah I took a lot of castor oil. I would say it was at least 4-6 ounces. It took forever to kick in, but I had severe diarrhea for about an hour, then an hour or so after that stopped, I had another round, and then a little while after that, one last round. When they gave it to me they said it takes about an hour. I had a little poop and said "oh that was not so bad, what is all the hoopla about" then i learned I hope your LO is here soon!!!!!!!!!!
