What is a safe oral laxative (in tablet form) for use during pregnancy? Is Dulcolax ok?

In brief: Several options

Dulcolax is safe but not particularly effective.
I recommend MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or the generic equivalent. That seems to work better. Fiber supplements like citrucel are also ok.
