i'm so tired of regular constipation. i NEVER got constipated before pregnancy, not even occasionally. it's the worst feeling in the world feeling backed up. it's almost midnight here and i just had to walk to the store to buy myself an organic enema because i just couldn't take it anymore. i feel so much better but i don't want to have to live off enema's because it weakens the muscles that help you poop. i drink about 90+ ounces of plain water a day (no other drinks) and i weight 100 lbs so thats almost my entire body weight in ounces of water, i exercise regularly, i eat a large variety of high fiber foods daily. always have lots of raw veggies. i don't even touch junk food. my diet is completely balanced. i even started eating those Metamucil cookies and those don't even help. what more can i possibly do? i can't go 5 more months with regular constipation. all the doc says is "eat more fiber" but i couldn't possibly eat more fiber, i have the highest fiber diet ever and it does nothing...help pleaseAnswer Question
