NO!! not even if you are backed up a few days!! I committed this mistake with my 1st pregnancy i was 20 weeks or less! i end up in the hospital for 3 days with dehydration, and the baby lost 2lbs in 2 days due to that!!


No I would not take Exlax or anything like it during pregnancy . It could cause intestinal cramping and irritate the bowls and could cause contractions . Also it could cause dehydration which can be very dangerous during pregnancy . If you are having constipation issues try upping your fiber intake thru your food or try a fiber supplement .
