  • I wouldn't push it. If you are blocked up, Colace is safe for pregnancy . . .the regular formula with no laxative.

  • They dont rec. it. you dont want to take to much. My doctors said try Dulcolax or Phillips. try a suppository. I was so miserable beginning of my preg. and that helped.

  • I was given an enema around 8 weeks pregnant by the er doc because i hadn't gone in 8 days, so i know it is relatively safe, unless you are close to your due date...but to be safe, i would call your dr
