Re: I want to hear your experience with castor oil

Castor oil causes diarrhea which dehydrates you. The dehydration is what causes contractions. When I worked in L & D we had lots of mamas that came in after taking castor oil with contractions. We sent most home since they weren't in true labor. A little bit of fluid and most stopped contracting pretty soon. Plus, if it does happen to work for you and if you progress quickly think of the fun diarrhea while pushing :-( ick!

Over the moon!! After 17 months of TTC, our sweet miracle, Corwin Gregory, was born August 29, 2012!! ...And our surprise baby number two, Locklan Thomas, arrived April 18, 2014..... And now surprise NUMBER THREE(!!) is due Dec 28, 2016. We're on a roll now!
