Sorry TMI, but wonder if any one else has this problem. Can constipation cause braxton hicks contractions to get worse?

  • sure like anon850 said. It's kinda like the knee bone is connected to the leg bone ya know what I mean? I've had consitipation without being preggers and had severe bad cramps. Being pregnant is close to that area and can worsen for a while preggers comfort.

    Hope you feel better !!!!!! And Congratulations!!!!!

  • I am not sure. Try eating sunflower seeds that may help with the constipation.

  • If you can eat spicy food try jalapenos to help constipation. If not, take an enema.
