Your OH is looking over your shoulder....

Yes he spotted it, not just the old sex to induce but the whole oral sex, swallow bit....

But even worse...I'm so desperate to get this baby out now...I followed Google's instructions.

The shame of it...OH is grinning like a Cheshire Cat hmm

Ive gone crazy, pregnancy has made me crazy!!

Castor oil can also cause the baby to pass meconium before birth.

It your being induced I would get on the evening primrose oil, hopefully help soften your cervix in readiness.

It's dangerous as it causes dehydration due to the runs it gives you. So you go into labour but are very dehydrated.

None of it works.

If it did, no-one would go through the undignified and potentially risky and largely unpleasant medical induction process.

Really? I had it (4-5 spoons in a cup of tea...yuck!) with DD1 & it worked like magic. It did give me runs too, but my waters broke in 10 minutes & in 5 hours DD was born! I was 5 days overdue.

I have heard its dangerous - but am not certain how us it dangerous?

artistic castor oil is dangerous. my gran nearly died after taking it to start labour. and it gets VERY messy as it gives you the runs. sad

Get your breast pump out !

I went four-wheel-driving over some very rough country! (passenger, not driver). Then I went for a longish walk through deep sand and up and down some dunes. I was EXHAUSTED, went home and crashed for 13 hours and woke up in established labour, 5 hours later DD popped out.

EssexGirlLottie Thu 07-Aug-14 12:46:02

Where do you put it?

Artistic Wed 06-Aug-14 23:21:32

Why isn't anyone talking about castor oil? Works like magic!

Crikey-hope it all goes well!

I have maternal tachacardia and unexplained losses of consciousness I pass out 4/5 times a day, sometimes in my sleep too.

I will be 40 weeks on Sunday.

Looking for the Michael Mcintyre bit but instead found this one:

I can't actually face pineapple after eating my not insubstantial body weight in the things trying to evict dc2 after a bad experience when dc1 was induced. Worked though,dc2 was spontaneous labour at 39+4, & I swear the truckload of pineapple I forced myself to eat in week 39 with dc3 also resulted in his arrival at 39+5. But as far as I'm aware it has to be fresh pineapple (& you have to eat the core too)

Would sending dp out for enough pineapples to make him look like the man from Del monte wipe the smile from his face?

Why Sunday btw OP? Will you be 42 weeks? You don't HAVE to be induced for being post-dates remember-it's up to you. Apologies if it's another reason.

A MW friend of mine told me to drink liquorice root tea. I'm slightly nervous as apparently it's dangerous in early pregnancy (can cause miscarriage) but I guess that's exactly why it's effective in late pregnancy?

Boudica1990 Wed 06-Aug-14 20:17:20

Well baby has been served his eviction notice, he has till sunday to come out or induction it is.

Impast the point of cacaring now how "bad" an induction is I just want this baby out!!

Walking up 6 flights of stairs daily set off labour for DS1 (born 38+5)

Catching toddler DS1 zooming down a hill on a scooter set off labour for DS2 (born 39+4)

Both were preferable to me than BJs during pregnancy cos of 9 months of morning sickness! (Both pregnancies)

allisgood1 Tue 05-Aug-14 20:01:19

Raspberry leaf tea always worked for me

MummytoMog Tue 05-Aug-14 19:49:56

Clary sage, pulsatilla pillules, shagging, lifting heavy objects and nipple tweaking. I would rather go two weeks over than give a blow job.

lettertoherms Tue 05-Aug-14 19:42:49

I hear hanging yourself by your tits and swinging back and forth works a treat for inducing labor...

SquattingNeville Tue 05-Aug-14 19:38:55

If you're looking for prostaglandins then Evening Primrose Oil is also full of them. You can either swallow them (they're fecking massive) or pop them up your fanjo.

ShyGirl1001 Tue 05-Aug-14 19:34:08

You've not seen the Michael McIntyre sketch on this then? Pure brilliance. His wife made him do it in a cup apparently...

mupperoon Tue 05-Aug-14 19:32:18

Our NCT teacher was adamant that BJs were the way forward. Thanks for the solidarity, sister!

Unless it tastes like aniseed Gaviscon I can't imagine being able to swallow. At 41 weeks I am keen to get this baby out but heartburn is pretty serious now!
