  • you can drink some warm prune juice. If you don't like the taste of it, just hold your nose and chug it. You can also take miralax. No taste but it smells like Elmers Glue. It is all natural so it is safe. Very effective. Try adding a little more fiber to your diet and that should help you stay regular during your pregnancy. Good Luck
