Omg this pregnancy constipation is insane! adult content

I have never had constipation like this EVER! Not even with my first. Guess I was lucky then- but boy do I have it this time! =( It is sooo bad! All I want to do is take a huge shit to get some relief!!! BUT NOTHING COMES OUT!

Besides switching to a prenatal with less iron and drinking more water, what else is there to do!?!? Any tips or advice for what worked for you?
Thank you!!!!

  • You can take over the counter stool softeners. NOT LAXITIVES - but stool softeners.

  • I was having the same problem. I took a nice long walk and after about 20 minutes I knew relief was on the way.

  • First I'd take an enema and relieve the discomfort. Then I'd eat more fiber.
