Any remedies for pregnancy constipation???

Can any of you preggos relate to awful constipation? What can I do to solve this? Prior to being pregnant I've been constipated for 6 days (sorry, tmi) till I started taking ground flax seed every morning (which worked miracles). However, my doc said not to take any flax seed now so I'm stuck. What works that's safe in pregnancy?

  • A bowl of bran flakes every morning. I washed mine down with a glass of chilled prune juice.

  • Prunes. You can get them individually wrapped or in a bag. You can even get some that have orange or cherry essences in them. Plum amzins are also grate for stirring into yougurt or hot cereals. Grapes, watermelon, all work well too.
