So ladies. I'm 23 weeks pregnant and for the last week constipated, yeah no fun! Well I took some dulcolax last night around 9pm and so far today nothing, here is 9:50am. What can I do? I drink lotsssssssss of water so idk. Two days ago I stopped taking my prenatal vitamins since they have iron and iron make me not to poop. Give me some advice that I can use since I'm pregnant and theres not much. SHould I ask my dr for some special medicine or something? I just ate a pbj sandwich because my mom told me peanut butter make you go, but how much? I put a looooot of pbj and now I have raisins..Whatever you can say to help it would be greatly appreciated!

Suppositories may get you started then do what some of the girls have mentioned by taking a stool softener like metamucil or Miralax.

Drink some prune juice or take some colace. Peanut butter makes the problem worse for me so I avoid it when I'm constipated
