    Hmmmmmm, I have never heard of it, but it can't hurt you, so I don't see why you shouldn't try it. Good luck

    I have heard of brown sugar & water helping with constipation, but not bringing on labour! I guess it wouldnt hurt to try though!

    LOL Maybe its similar to the castor oil theory that by making you poo heaps, you will encourage your body to go into labour.

    Hi,

    well i tried it.....well sort of

    I kinda forgot for a sec that i have GD and i took a few sips,it tasted gross and then i felt sick so i took my BS and it went up to 14.8!!!!....oopps

    so i would definitly not recommend it for anyone who has GD but if you dont it wont hurt to try.....except for the fact that it tastes like crap!!

    Default Hiya

    I actually tried the brown sugar thing yesterday and.....nothing

    Did make me going to the toilet and certainly didnt make labour come on. All it didnt was make me feel a little sick after I drunk all that sugar.

    Sorry
