Hello all readers/bloggers.
For an infant however, with an inability to communicate or understand either the cause or solution, the misery of constipation can be unbearable, both for him and for you! Let's get started by getting the "scoop on poop" -- or in this case, rather, the lack thereof!
Hemorrhoids are a very common medical complaint. About 40% of pregnant women develop them. So what can you do to prevent them? If you have them, what is a safe treatment for you and baby?
I am in my first trimester; about 5 weeks now. I am experiencing bad constipation! I have tried everything from fiber cereals to Metamucil and drinking plenty of water. It feels like nothing is working. I have used enemas in the past and they have worked.
Can I use one now to relieve the pain? Is this safe for the baby?
I am 8 weeks pregnant second child. I woke up this morning severely constipated. I went very white and was sweating profusely. I have never experienced this before. It took almost two hours of agonizing pain before I finally had a movement. Now I am afraid to go to the toilet again in case of reoccurance.
Please can you help me? I am really scared
So this is the second child and boy is it a different pregnancy. I maybe had 3 boughts of nausea the first time and never really experienced any other symptoms. This time nausea has become my best friend, I get nautious constantly, but luckily these past few days it has been going away, hopefully this is the end of the nausea. I can't eat either, I remember having a few food items that would make me nautious, but this time I can only eat what I am craving or I feel like I am going to get sick, I tried a bite of steak and immediatley had to spit it out! I LOVE STEAK!
I stopped taking the pill the day before I got my last period. I got my last period on Jan.27th. I haven't gotten my period yet. I'm constipated, nausea for about 4 days now, feel a little crampy & bloated, but I don't feel like I'm getting my period. I've had the hiccups alot lately too, but havent' been eating much due to nausea.
Could i be pregnant?
I am 9 weeks today. I have been really constipated, which I am told is normal. The problem is before I got pregnant my iron was always low and every few months I was on iron pills. Once I got pregnant I stopped taking them, until I saw my doctor to be sure I could still take them (on Thursday).
The experience of pregnancy and childbirth has long been described as miraculous. Constipation is commonly associated with pregnancy and the period directly after the birth. The problems, although part of the miracle of birth, can make you feel less than miraculous! Here are some very simple things that help alleviate constipation during pregnancy and in the post-partum period.
I am now 6 weeks pregnant and I am constipated. Can I take a mild laxative, if it exists? If I can't take a laxative what should I do? This feeling is very annoying and I hope you can give me some advice. Thank you in advance for taking time out to read my email.
