  • The baby is pressing on your bowels and that will constipate anyone. The pre natal vitamins dont help it either.

  • Spinach, green beans, collard greens, and lots of water helps! Trust me I had it from day one all the way until seven and a half months!

  • Early in pregnancy the progesterone will slow things down, also it has to do with your body trying to absorb as much of the nutrient in your food as possible. Increase fluids and fiber to help ease it a bit.

  • pretty much what the others are saying. Early in pregnancy it can be from hormonal changes and later its because of baby and hormones. :)

  • What I just read was hormones. I think it's a combination of things...
    I eat prunes now...and rely on a little caffeine a few times a week....which cleans me out almost immediately :P~
