Ab Pain @ 4 weeks

I am 4 weeks pregnant, miscarried in April, and I feel bloated and cramped like i've been doing an excess amound of sit ups. My 1st pregnancy I don't recall feeling like this. Has anyone else felt like this? Maybe constipated, what's safe to take for that wen preg?

  • yeah, i would say it's probably some kind of intestinal thing making you feel like that. the only thing that's ever worked for me (and i tried stool softeners and prescriptions too) is drinking lots of water and eating tons of fresh fruit. that worked great for me.... the stool softener didn't do anything lol

  • I was the opposite of princessbeth79. Eating lots of fresh fruit and water did nothing for me. What worked for me was Colace Stool softner. Safe to take while pregnant.
