  • well ask ur doc about an enema.....i cant remember if they stimulate contractions or not so make sure that you ask first before trying! i know that some laxitives can cause cramping that can start up labor contractions.....so ask first please!

  • i asked my dr and they said i can take any laxitive they didn't say anything about an enema so im assuming i shouldn't do one of those.
