not sure what to do to help labor to start?

So I am in such pain. I have a hernia in my belly button area and I am 9 months pregnant. I am constipated for the most part. With my intestions poking through the hernia I need to go more than a little bit every few days. I have taken stool softners and fiber not working. I just took two fiber laxatives. By doing that can I go into labor?

    No, but you can harm your baby. Easy on the laxatives. Those can go through your system and you will wind up with a baby with meconium aspiration. You can not start labor on your own. I know hernias are really difficult but you are almost there. Drink tons and tons of fluid. Get some walking in if you can. If you are really stopped up talk with your care provider about it.
