The only thing i can think of is to eat way smaller meals, but i'm having pregnancy constipation and still eating lots of great things everyday, but when i do have a bowel movement its huge. i've clogged the toilet twice and torn myself to the point of bleeding. i'm eating things with extra fiber everyday, anything else i can do?

The thing about taking extra fiber, which can be good, is that you have to up your fluid intake by a lot. Fiber, with out being properly hydrated can constipate you. Its really tough. You might get better by just upping your water intake. Try that.
Also, what works well for me is a low carb tortilla by Mission called "Carb Balance". Its got 21g of fiber in one tortilla. They are good and you can make cheese quesadillas or other sandwich wraps. I eat one either daily or every other day but HAVE to increase my water intake to make them work well. Nothing else has worked enough for me.
Good luck. Drink tons!
