So I took 1 tablespoon of castor oil around 10:15am and didnt really have symptoms, I had a few braxton hicks contractions but nothing major. I took 1 more tablespoon it is now 2:09pm. When I went to my dr on monday she said I was about 2 cm dilated and my cervix was soft. I have been trying to keep busy and moving to get my labor jump started but nothing is working so my last resort was this dreaded Castor Oil (UGH SOOO NASTY!) anyway I need some help ladies who have tried this before how long does it usually take to induce labor (if it even works for me .. I know it doesnt work for everyone) but what is the usual window in which it should start working. If it doesnt work I refuse to take more and my little man will just come when he comes but I was just giving it a shot.
