Sound like you are in for a makeover.

The last thing that made me smile was a friend of mine sending me an instant message telling me to drink castor oil to make my baby come faster. Who comes up with these things anyway? I'd like to know the first person to try that.

Just so you know, the purple spray paint is apparently for my cane so it will match my eyebrow piercing....yes I have one, also courtesy of Rent-a-Daughter!

I did it once when I was almost 3 weeks overdue. In my case it worked - or at least I went into labor that day. (Who knows if I would have gone into labor anyway being that overdue?)

At 3 weeks overdue I think I'd try just about anything! How was it? (The oil, I'm assuming the waiting and the labor were awful and painful as is expected).

When I was young, I was really self concious of all the moles all over my body, specially the ones on my face. My Grandmother, who I absolutely adored, told me that caster oil would work to remove them. So, I faithfully downed it 3 times a day in an attempt to remove them. I complained to her that it didn't work and almost made me throw up and she said "dear, you are supposed to rub it on them, not drink it!

The oil isn't bad - stir it into some orange juice or other juice and drink it very fast! Actually, I'm so lucky that labor and childbirth isn't particularly painful for me. Really! I've never had any pain meds or anesthesia of any kind with any of my children and it's not because I'm a martyr. I just never needed it.

Check with your doc or midwife before taking castor oil, of course. But midwives often suggest castor oil to help induce labor in a full term pregnancy. My OB suggested it to me. He also suggested a couple of other things I'm not sure I could post here but if you want to know, PM me.
