  • Just about anything OTC is going to be safe at this point, but if you need to make sure, call a pharmacy or your doctor and ask...

  • I feel for you, I went thru that around the same time during my pregnancy. I tried everything and nothing helped. It will go away with time i know that sounds like a horrible thing to wait to get better but it will.

  • I would get your doctor to prescribe a stool softener. It is a common complaint.

  • Although common, and if you are still worried about taking something, try increasing your fiber intake....apple juice and prune juice work well usually.
