  • Constipation is my biggest pregnancy complaint. Seriously, I spend the entire 9 months constipated. Colace doesn't work, fiber doesn't work, drinking tons of water doesn't work (I am using the present tense because I am currently preggo myself). I have just learned to deal with it and know that it'll be over in a few months. Wish I could give you a "magic" fix, but I haven't found one yet. It really stinks.

  • I found one. I tried everything but enemas work really well. Ask your doctor about it first.

  • If nothing is working. Try a chiropractor. We do that for my oldest. It does not matter what we do. There are times nothing but the chiropractor will work. I also was pretty bad with first. The Chiropractor really helped me out on that.
