I'm right there with you with all the swelling. My midwife told me to soak in a bathtub every day for something like 45 minutes with lots of epsom salt - she said buy a huge bag and use 1/2 for each bath. It has helped a little bit. Sadly, I honestly don't think there is anything out there to "put" you into labor. From the research I've done, and also talking to midwives and doulas, you won't go into labor until you are good and ready. There are things, previously mentioned, that can help ripen your cervix. I agree with you and everyone else - avoid castor oil at all costs. I've heard it only gives you the runs, vomiting and cramping.
