    Default Stomach Cramps and Constipation TMI

    ARGHHHH!! I hate constipation! My stomach is constantly cramping because I need to go, but I literally can't. And if I do, it's so small and takes literally 1 - 1 1/2 hours to have a BM.

    I remember it being horrible with DS< but I'm miserable!

    sorry just needed to vent

    have you tried metamucil?

    i had HORRIBLE constipation with DS. like I would be there forever and I am pretty sure one time it caused me to spot!!! terrible!

    so far it has been wayyyy better. I do get a lot of cramps and gas, but I will take that over the horrible constipation. sorry you are dealing with it

    I am just getting past that (for now). Zofran makes it really bad!

    I drink two glasses of apple juice a day. Once I finally started going again, it has stayed good with the apple juice.

    But when I was in the middle of it, the pain was so bad I seriously almost asked Jon to take me to the ER. It's absolutely miserable. The cramps are almost unbearable and when I finally went, it caused bleeding. Ouch!!!!

    Mine was really bad there for a while. I've upped my water intake greatly and also eat a yogurt every day and that has made a huge difference. HTH sorry you're suffering That is one of the most miserable things ever.

    I'm going to talk to my OB tomorrow because I am trying everything. I eat prunes, metamucil, Fiber One bars, lots and lots of water, hot drinks and fruit. I'm going to start drinking some fruit juices too. I started to bleed bright red the other night so I am not pushing anymore. Oh and Colace, but I'm not sure how much of that I can take??

    We'll see, but I know there isn't much they can do.

    Are you taking prenatals? I wonder i f it's the iron. As long as you're not anemic, you should try taking a women's daily vitamin instead. It's basically the same thing without the heavy doses of iron. I always take them when I'm pg, because prenatals upset my stomach.
