42+4

Tried all the natural stops today- walking, sex, hot bath, acupuncture, breast pump..........

Baby is feeling bigger and when he moves, my whole body moves!  Crazy.  

I'll go for castor oil tomorrow if nothing's going on by mid morning.  I just can't do this forever- now I'm not feeling afraid of labor, I am worried that he'll be too big for me to get out.

Oh shit.

Just read some more about castor oil induction and now don't want to...I did it with my first son and it was no big deal.  But other people have had such traumatic experiences and even death of babies because of it...come on baby!!!!!  just come already.

Jenny - since all castor oil does is stimulate the bowel you could try an enema instead. Gross but no bad side effects. You are so patient even if you won't admit it. 99.9% of women (myself included) would never go past 42 weeks.
