This was great to go through and read, everyone had valuable information to share. I had a great castor oil experience with my last, I am now due with my 5th baby. My last three now I have had lots of pre labour and never know when the real thing is going to start. I took castor oil with my last babe when I was 9 days OD. Went into labour 8 hours later and it was an amazing 3 hour labour with only minutes of pushing. I have been tempted to do it again, but after reading these posts I have decided just to enjoy the rest of what has already been a great pregnancy and let my little one come when ready.
