  • i've always found that drinking a lot of juice/eating a lot of fruits help...they're natural laxatives...i always turn to Kern's Apricot juice to do the trick :)

  • i really hate prunes they taste nasty but they have dried prunes out there and they are not so bad i try to eat at least 2 prunes a day if i remember, its hard to stay regular with the prenantals they seem to make me constipated,

    u can also take laxatives, the equate ones are ok to take as long as u take as directed...

    i do warn u hun when u finally do go its going to hurt cause u have built up a "plug" there may be a lil blood too but dont worry you will feel so much better after you go...

  • Two words PRUNE JUICE. The stuff in prune juice will help things loosen up and let things flow.
