Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you use to help with it. i have been taking fibor supplements but thats not helping :(. I tried to call my dr. but they are so busy today. I was put on hold twice and no one ever came back on the line. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

  • With my first I tried everything and there was nothing I could do. Some women just have it. But things you can try lot of water, prune juice(best is when you have it in the freezer for 20mins and then drink. It seems to taste better), fiber one bars, fiber cereals, lots of fruit. Stay way from caffeine. If you watch what you eat. You can also find out which foods make it worse or even better. Good luck, Have been there.

  • i had the same problem with all my pregnancies. what helped me was right away after waking up drinking either coffee or milk, depending on whether it was hot or cold in the house. my doctor told me that drinking something either hot or really cold would help and i found out it was the best advice i'd ever been given.
