  • I am about 21 weeks and I have experienced that problem as well, what has helped me is drinking as much apple juice as I could without making myself sick and it has always helped, if it doesn't help lots of fruit can help, but if nothing helps then call your dr.

  • You SHOULD call your doctor or midwife to ask them what you should do. I can only tell you that I had the same issues and that my midwife recommended a few doses of Colace, which is OTC now. Feel better!

  • You should still be able to speak to someone on-call!

  • Your not allowed to see your choice of doctor that accepts medicaid? I'm not familiar with medicaid, but that shocks me. I guess if you are extremely uncomfortable, you would have to go to an urgent care or ER facility then. You can also do your own research and make your own decision with OTC drugs. Be sure to check the pregnancy class if you do so. Best wishes to you.

  • Wow! That's crazy. An OB should certainly have an answering service. What if you were in labor?
