Back from my NST. Babe looks perfect.
MDC has been messed up for me too. I tried to congratulate mamablueberry like 4 times before it finally went through.
Here's my castor oil story from DS's birth, 2 years ago: At 42+1 I took the oil at 7 a.m., a whole shot glass full, chased with OJ. I had read that one would typically feel the effects (diarrhea) within 4 or 5 hours, so I was disappointed when I didn't have any bowel issues by 2 p.m.
So I took a whole 'nother shot glass full.
By 4 p.m., I was pretty much glued to the toilet. That lasted til 6 or so. Maybe til 7-ish. And I didn't get any contrax out of it, either. But I didn't puke and it wasn't that bad for me -- just watery, watery diarrhea and a very messed-up -feeling bowel. No mec in the water, either, when I had AROM 3 days later as part of my failed pitocin induction.
I am probably going to try castor oil again this weekend, along with nipple stim.
