I haven't been in 4 days!!
Any ideas to get me going?
Get a stool and put your feet on it when you oare on the loo so that you look like your squatting..that should open you up...and avoid piles!!!!
Drink lots of water or fruit juice. Eat fiber. Drink more water. Oh, and drink water.
Eat fresh veggies like celery stalk, carrots. Fruit will help too. Coffee somehow helps get things going, if you can stand it. I feel your pain- it's one of those annoying symptoms.
Are you taking iron pills? The dosage might be pluggin' you up.
water water water. have a cup of coffee or tea. that should do the trick. i would hold off on taking any supplements because it may be a little TOO helpful!:eek:
There is a tea called Smooth Move. It is safe for preg.. and it works.
Grape juice & dried apricots works like a charm for me. GL!
Thanks for all the great advice.
Shopping tomorrow so I'll make sure I buy lots of fruit and vege Pick up some prune juice too. Try and find something I can add to water bcoz it tastes so chemically!
I wish I could still have my morning coffee, but the taste at the moment is really off putting makes me want to :puke:
i drink at least 64 oz of water a day and it still doesnt help with my constipation. Im so getting a stool softner. I hate prenantals because of that
I'm on extra iron so my poo is green...and as I have collitis when I get constipated I don't need to worry about it being hard when it does come...I guess there are blessings in a dodgy bowel...lol
hope you manage to go soon...keep a magazine or book by the loo so you can relax in there when you need to.
My doctor said I could eat Activia, so I have one every other day and it helps a lot.
