  • I have never experienced it either but I think that trying to ease the constipation is your only option right now.
    I would really feel more on the safe side without the bleeding and cramping thing. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. Aim for eight 8-ounces glasses a day. Daily walks, can be effective.
    Eat high-fiber foods, such as fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains.Try fiber supplements, such as psyllium powder, Metamucil or Citrucel.A simple stool softener is safe to take in any trimester in pregnancy. But don't take any other type of laxative without first discussing it with your doctor. Good luck !
    On side note Im 29 weeks too :)
