I am 36 weeks with a baby that's already 6.5 lbs i am miserable. my doctor sucks and the past 3 days ive been having contractions nothing real is it safe for the baby to take castor oil?
It's not uncommon for some women to feel pretty uncomfortable when this far along in pregnancy and just want it over with. Most doctors will give up to 2 weeks past the due date to be on the safe side, so try to hang on for that extra 2 weeks. If nothing happens after that then talk to your doctor and I'm sure he'll induce labor. Take care of yourself and nix the castor oil! As miserable as you feel you want a healthy baby. There is an old way of bringing on labor and it's safe and it's lightly scrubbing the kitchen floor! No kidding! Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. DON'T ingest anything to bring on your baby. An early Congratulations! Answer the baby will come when it's ready to come all caster oil will do is give you a bad case of diarreha

If you're 36 weeks pregnant and you took castor oil and now your contractions are 5 minutes apart when should you go to the doctor?
Answer . Call the hospital now! If they are constantly 5 minutes apart you need to get there ASAP! Even if it's false labor it's still hard false labor--and they will eithe…r want to go ahead and let you have the baby or they will try stopping your contrations. It's not a good idea to drink castor oil at 36 weeks because your due date could have been slightly off by a week or two, as not all babies develop the same in the womb. But since the deed is done, call now! Don't even read this! Get off of the computer and call! :). Answer . Now!!
Need to correct the above answer. At 37weeks your baby is not considered premature. At 37 weeks you are considered full-term! Answer At 34 weeks pregnant, Your baby has not …fully developed his/her lungs. That will not be developed til 37 weeks and will still be considered premature at that age. If your just tired of being pregnant, as alot of us probably were, You just have to wait it out. That's the best thing to do, no matter how tired you are. your doctors will let you know if your in trouble and they will do what they have to do.
You are 36 weeks and been contracting now since 31 weekswas in labor at 31 do you think castor oil will work for me doc says its safe to have baby now i am tired of hurting what would you do?
Answer . I tried that with my first child. I don't suggest it. I didn't go into labor, but I crapped myself silly!\nTry pinching your nipples, or getting your man to do it…. That releases hormones into your system that will trigger labor. I'm not saying it will work every time, but that's how I induced my labor with my last child.
yes it is
Castor oil is really not recommended to try and induce labour. It often causes vomiting and diarrhea, which isn't something you want during labour. It is also proven not to be… effective at inducing labour. Really, the best thing to do is wait for your body to go into labour naturally. If your body is not already in labour, then there is a reason for that, and messing with it isn't a good idea. I know many many women that have taken castor oil to induce their labors (around their due dates of course) and not only did they never have a problem BUT, they also started having contractions anywhere between 2-4 hours later with a baby following shortly there after. Also, I'm 9 1/2 months pregnant now, and every doctor that I've seen as well as my mother (who has been an RN for 26yrs) has told me that if I want to try castor oil "Go ahead". It can not and will not do any harm except cause cramping. It's your decision. Please do not try to induce your own labor with castor oil. It will cause increased cramping and uncomfortableness for you and not worth it. When the time is right, the baby will come. Do not rush it, take this time to rest and prepare yourself for the baby. My sister is an OBGYN. She said that this is an absolute idiotic thing for a woman to do.
Answer . yes it will put u in labor but ask your doctor first good luck
It is generally safe to take Castor oil for constipation, except during pregnancy. It is contraindicated in pregnancy, specially in late pregnancy, as it can precipitate the l…abour pains. It is given some times by your Gynaecologist to induce the labour pains.
You are 39 weeks pregnant 1cm dialated and 50 effaced you are so tired and ready to have this baby already the doctor said his head is down in the right position and you would like to try castor oil?
Caster oil can be a VERY uncomfortable way to begin labor. It is a laxative with powerful capabilities. I myself have used it 2x (have 4 children) and it honestly never worked… to get the babies out- just gave me the runs and major cramping. personally I would rather wait to birth, than wait to birth with diharrea. Other ways to get things moving along can be sex (if you are comfortable to do it), spicy food, long gentle walks, meditating, rest, or massage. You are close and I know at this point- you just want it all over. But soon enough- it will be. Hand in there!
If I am 36 weeks and 6 days pregnant will castrol oil hurt me if i take it its not only that i want my baby here but I am having trouble using the bathroom?
Castrol oil does not work. I have had 5 kids, if you want to have your baby just do what got you into this in the first place. Have sex and you will have her believe me.
Yes, castor oil is dangerous as it can 1. trigger labour 2. cause the baby to have a bowel movement before birth which can be potential fatal. I was super overdue and looked …into castor oil as a way to help things along the doctor said absolutely not.
You were given co codamol in late pregnancy by a doctor ive had the baby 3 days ago and your little boy seen to be having some kind of withdraw what can you do to help?
Firstly, you should be asking your Pediatrician this question. Sounds like you need immediate medical help, and with a baby but 3 days old, you need professional medical help,… and right now. Get to the baby's doctor right away - you should have done that way before asking a question here.
At 31 weeks pregnant can you take castor oil to make your baby come out faster and if you do what will happen to him?
If you care for the health of your baby you really, really, shouldn't do anything to try to make it come out faster. At 31 the baby will probably survive, but it will still …be considered premature, and that's a bad start in life.
No it will not. You will defecate after taking it and thus facilitate labor.
Purposely tanning is never a good idea--it increases the risk of skin cancer, prematurely ages skin, and can cause painful burns. Sunblock should be worn whenever your skin is… exposed to the sun for long periods of time. If you insist on tanning, it's probably better to wait until 6 weeks, when your hormone levels have all returned to normal. This decreases the risk of melasma, dark patchy staining of the face
39 wks with baby at plus 3 station 90 percent thinned out and 4 centimeters no real contractions will labor start soon if not what should I try castor oil I tried with another birth nada happened?
Why would you try to speed up a birth that isn't even past the due date yet?. Let nature take it's course...you will go into labor when the baby and your body are ready. Tryi…ng to speed things up is unnecessary and, depending on what you try, can be dangerous.. And for God's sake, don't drink castor oil. Not only will it not speed up/induce labor, but you'll be on the toilet in horrible pain for hours. The baby doesn't need to have you depleting his/her nutrients.. I remember being that far along and wondering (even tho I wasn't overdue) if I was going to be pregnant forever. The fact is that you won't be.
No, because if you drink Castor Oil during an early development stage you may harm the baby .The harm happens because drinking Castor Oil causes diarrhea Which may cause you…r baby to have a bowl movement in the womb.
Im 34 weeks pregnant had the celestone for thebaby's lungs and baby weighs 5 pounds is it safe to take castor oil?
I don't see how it could be safe to take castor oil, isn't it a laxative? It could cause cramps, and induce labor..you should talk to you obgyn before taking anything.
