On Saturday at 39 weeks I was frustrated with false labors and wanted my baby out. I drank Rose leaf tea, went for walks which made me contract Saturday night but they faded.
11pm I took my first dose of Castor Oil (2tbsp) Sunday 1:30am Loose stools and strong contractions 4am regular contractions stopped, now irregular 12pm used breast pump 1pm went for a walk sporadic contractions 2pm took 2nd dose of Castor Oil no bowel movement and no contractions 5pm went for a walk having stronger contractions 9pm called doctor because every time I stood I contracted, she advised to either go to the hospital or come in to her office the next day
Monday April 2, 2012 6am dressed for work 7am got out of my car at work and started contracting, husband drove me to the doctors office 10am Doctor sent me to the hospital to induce current early labor 11am Pitocin started 12pm Water broken by the doctor 2cm, Internal fetal monitors placed on babys head 1pm epidural 2pm epidural not working on the right side, nerve endings were damaged and had to be numbed 5pm - 5cms 6pm- 7cms 9pm 7cms 10pm - 7cms cervical arrest emergency c-section 10:35pm Cade was born!! 6lbs 9ozs 20inches
My pelvis was too small for the baby.
I think the Castor oil would have worked otherwise.
Ive had a rough recovery and still have troubles walking. I have a lot of post surgery and post pregnany edema. It took 4 days for my milk to come in.[IMG][/IMG]
