I eat enough fiber. I actually usually even eat more than the recommended daily amount, because I eat a lot of whole grains and fruits and vegetables. I also usually get enough water. Not every day, but most days I get at least the 8 glasses.
Why do I still deal with constipation? Not always, but an awful lot. I'm pretty "regular", but I still deal with small, hard stools, and on the days I don't have small hard ones I have large hard ones that exacerbate the hemorrhoids I got during my pregnancy with my son. I've tried psyllium fiber supplements and it didn't help, just made me go 3 days without a BM and when it came it was gummy. I'm sorry for the visual.
What am I doing wrong?

Take Metamucil daily. I had the same problem with constipation until I had my gallbladder removed.
