2 tbsp is OK: 2 tablespoons is OK. will it get you into labor, I am not so sure. If you are not more than 41 weeks, please be calm. Watch for kick counts and if they are OK, speak with your doctor and get a day for induction scheduled. Your cervix needs to be ripe before you get induced. Otherwise, you will risk getting a cesarean section. Not worth it.
