castor oil attempt!!
I tried castor oil, it was by far the worst induction attempt! What worked for me was eating a plate of pasta loaded with oregano, which is said to help start labor, then put on a rubber glove, lubed my fingers with EPO, and stripped my membranes my baby was born 13 hours later
But how far along were you? This mom is only 38 weeks, she's not even due yet.
I agree, let your baby finish developing in utero. Be patient, it won't be long
The College and SMFM have long recommended that doctors not induce labor or perform cesareans before 39 weeks of pregnancy without a clear medical reason. A full-term pregnancy lasts 40 weeks. “Early-term” deliveries are those that occur between 37 and 39 weeks of gestation. Early-term infants have higher rates of respiratory distress, respiratory failure, pneumonia, and admission to neonatal intensive care units compared with infants born at 39 to 40 weeks gestation. Infants born at 37 to 38 weeks also have a higher mortality rate than those born later.
You can also take EPO orally, I think I was taking 3 or 4 a day at the end.
Good luck! I hope everything gets straightened out quickly for you.
