  • Ohhhh, I know how you feel. When I was pregnant, it was horrible along with the heartburn, acid reflux, etc.! My doctor actually prescribed me prenatal vitamins, which you should be taking anyway, that had a stool softener it them. They were wonderful. Other suggestions would be to increase the fiber in your diet (oatmeal, fiber cereals, apples, vegetables).
