  • Maybe you should & ask the doctor for some stool softeners.

  • This is very common with pregnancy. Just have someone go to the store and get you a Fleet enema. They are in any drug store or Walmart, Target, etc in the isle with the laxative and fiber supplements. Fleets enemas are simple to use, the relief is immediate and they are completely safe to use during pregnancy.

    For the rest of the pregnancy drink one glass of Metamucil at night to keep this from happening again...also safe during pregnancy.

  • I had this problem and the doc just told me to get stool softeners. And they worked fine just took a little while to get results. That was the only downfall

MAN did it WORK !!! lol Get you one of those and you will be good to go AND it wont hurt you or the baby !
