  • No constipation here either, just more freqent stools.

    Constipation is supposed to result from a slowed gastro intestional system and the increase of iron supplements in your prenatals.

    Sometimes the increase of fiber in your diet may counter act these issues and increase your bowel movements and some people get more frequent bowel movements with an increase in iron.

    Every person has a different body. I know that my increase in bowel movements are from the iron in my prenatals.

    Unless you are having diarrhea then be happy! Constipation is a horrible thing.
