A common sypmtom assocaited with pregnancy is constipation - the body moves digested food through more slowly so it can absorb more nutrients.  Are you suffering from this?  What are you doing to get some relief?

Some days I have it, but not consistently. I've been taking a stool softener if I go a full day without a BM.

I take a magnesium supplement.  Pregnancy tends to deplete your body of magnesium - and I have constipation issues at times not pregnant, ugh - and one of the major signs is constipation.  I'm thinking that my diligence with magnesium this time around might be the thing staving off my morning sickness as well.
