I've done it twice, on my MW's suggestion. (With DS#1, I was 42+ weeks. With DS#2, I was a 40 week TOLAC and my membrane had been ruptured for 3 days). For me, it wasn't that bad. Yeah, I smurf my brains out and it tasted horrible, but it kicked me into active labor both times.
If you decide to go for it, drink it with a really sweet soda (like orange soda or cream soda). The carbonation and sweetness help it go down.
