  • Diet, fruits & veggies, yogurt, those types of things can get you going again!! If it's bad enough talk to your dr!! Don't wait!!

  • Eat things with plenty of fiber. Oatmeal, bran flakes, etc. I would also talk to my doctor to see if it would be safe to use a mild laxative.

  • check with your doctor first but I take 250mg of magnesium starting at one a day, then increased to two a day equally spaced if I still don't go. I have chronic constipation and this worked my last two pregnancies. The idea is you take enough to help you go, if you take too much it will have the same effect as too much vitamin C.

    You can buy it at GNC, don't do the generic brand, they taste awful and for about $4 it's worth the good coating.

  • Use a stool softener like Colace (you can get OTC) Avoid laxatives at all costs. They are not safe to use this early.

  • I TAKE TWO 500MG FIBER PILLS A DAY. IT REALLY HELPS. I HAVE IBS SO BEING PREGNANT IT JUST ADDS TO IT SEEING AS CONSTIPATION IS PART OF PREGNANCY. I TAKE THE GENERIC CITRUCEL. I FEEL THE METHYLCELLULOSE FIBER IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER FIBERS OUT THERE. RAISIN BRAN WORKS WONDERS TOO, LOL. GOOD LUCK AND CONGRATS!
