    It can have nasty, nasty side effects. I wasn't going to go there.

  • Nope its a myth.. It will most likely give you an unset stomach with frequent bathroom trips.. Nothing short of a c-section will make a baby come out until it is ready.. Inductions can lead to a c-sections when your body/baby is not ready yet..

    Hang in there mom

  • No. I wasn't willing to risk my baby being born having trouble breathing because of something stupid that I caused.
