Did it make anyone else, erm, poo?

36.5 weeks and all it seems to do is have me running for the loo after every cup!

I took the capsules and no it did not make me poo.

But I took some herbal tea some time back and spent most of my days on the loo.

Hope it gets better for you.

No. Kept running the 2 days before I went into labour - maybe that's it....

Hey dabihp,
I started drinking r.l tea at about 36wks in my last pg, I have to say, I don't think it did a great deal for me. I was still 10 days late and had a ventouse delivery.

No sign of poopies either!

It made me fart, I had to stop taking it for social reasons{grin].

I drank gallons of the stuff but didn't make me poo!

I do know lots of people that say they got the runs before they went into labour though .

I went over by 14 days so didn't 'induce' my labour, but did have good short 6hour labour with only gas and air. Could be just luck, could be help from r&l who knows?

Early labour would be nice... But I suppse 36 + 5 wks is too early?
