I am new to this site, stumbled upon it while looking for some answers.
I am 10 weeks pregnant today with my 1st baby and so this is all new to me. I've been taking all the required vitamins and have noticed that within the last 2 weeks my normal bowel movements are no longer normal. Along with my vitamins I started taking Fiber Choice tablets along with adding tons of fiber in my diet but am still having difficulty actually going to the bathroom. I was told by my OB the it is normal for your body to slow down and concentrate on the baby growing inside. However, I still find it strange that when I finally do go to the bathroom that it is not as much as it should be. I drink more than 8 glasses of water per day, exercise every other day and even cut out bread out of my diet. Is anyone else having this same problem? Any suggestions on how to become "regular" again? I never though i would go through this so early in my pregnancy.
