It makes you poop and throw up. I did it with my first and I was sooooo sick, I would never do it again. But I did go into labor within three days and he was eight days early, but like I said I have had three kids since and would NEVER do it again. It has been sixteen years and it is still with me YUCK~~ I am not sure how much you should drink though you can probably google it. Good luck

I would NOT try that method. All it is going to do is upset your stomach and give you diarrhea and throwing up. Not fun when 9 months pregnant!!
