Quoting Nicole Jean Sanderson:" I am thinking of trying castor oil, my grandfather who has cancer really wants me to have my daughter ... [snip!] ... to see if they can scrap my membrane. if you have any tips that'd be great! i really want to have her on my grandpa's birthday!"
I took a tablespoon with my son.....well I mixed it with orange juice to be easier to take; but I still think I didn't get enough since I didn't develop bad diarrhea nor did I go into labor. I think I took it a day or two before my due date and was still 4 days over due! Also like OP said it may be some ladies dat cut you down bout this; but I feel like everyone needs to be educated on any topic they post about...even if people feel a certain way......plus ur reasoning for wanting to take it is cause others you know have. but they say it isn't good to take cause it would cause you and the baby both to get diarrhea and of course for baby you don't want that!
I won't take it again, cause it didn't work and I didn't know the effects; it was just something my Grandmother suggested! Plus nexted child will be a scheduled c-section!
