, I am 40 weeks in on the 30th so only two days to go and have only JUST thought and looked up castor oil, I would definitely read up on it because at 36 weeks your baby is not ready otherwise pregnancy would only be for 36 weeks.
If there is something wrong the doctor will talk to you about your options and you might definitely likely look at ANOTHER way to bring on the labor, but castor oil... it is disgusting!!! took it yesterday and has not done anything for me other than make me vomit and feel tired... It may work for you but to be HONEST I really wouldn't be selfish and take the castor oil, your lil one will come when they are ready to come... You can cause fetal distress and more... and is not recommended unless you have spoken to your midwife... at the stage you are at I have heard of a product called Pre-Birth which you can get at any Health Pharmacy, once again look it up but it is used earlier on and later in your pregnancy your midwife can do what is known as a stretch and sweep to help you along, but just ask them about it at your next appointment...
All the best :)
No. Castor oil can in some cases help start labor when you are fully gone.
You shouldn't. If the pregnancy is healthy, let labor come on its own.
You can still get pregnant with a UTI. A UTI during pregnancy can raise the risk of preterm labor.
Yes, there are babies who die this late. If you go into labor it's premature labor though and not miscarriage.
It is possible for the mother of a pregnant woman to have Couvade syndrome, or sympathetic labor pains. Most doctors believe that feeling sympathetic pain is psychosomatic -- meaning all in your head -- but other doctors believe that it is caused by fluctuations in hormones.
No this is a myth.
Yes it is normal to get lower back pain, after drinking castor oil to go into labbor.
Yes, it certainly can.
No. If only 35 weeks pregnant, your cervix will not be ripened enough to allow true labor to begin. Will cause you lots of diarrhea and cramps, possibly back pain as well. Castor oil is know to work best after 37 weeks gestation and a ripened cervix.
Castor oil is a laxative and can cause cramping that can induce labor. Castor oil is not advised to be used by pregnant women.
Castor oil does not give you contractions directly, it gives you diarrhea. Those cramps are believed to sometimes bring on labor but usually it's just you sitting on the toilet with the runs. So stay away from the oil. 36 weeks you are not even fullterm yet and the baby can have problems.
Castor oil generally doesn't work. It often just gives you diarrohea
A doctor will never tell you to drink Castor Oil. There are no studies that show Castor Oil will induce labor or help your baby flip from the breech position.
Castor oil is a laxative not used to induct labor. As the labor progresses and contraction becomes strong cervical dilatation will increase.
You will not go in labor normally at 32 weeks of pregnancy, when you take Castor oil. But then this is not universally true. So you do not give such a brisk purgative to the pregnant woman, at this stage of pregnancy.
It determined that while there were no harmful effects associated with castor oil to either mother or baby, it wasn't particularly helpful at inducing labor, either. When it's effective at beginning labor, castor oil may cause irregular and painful contractions, which can be stressful to mom and baby alike.
You are not allowed to take aspirin when pregnant and no it can not.
