Try some colace first( a stool softner) and if that doesn't work try a small amount of a laxative

Try coffee, it's a laxative. I know it;s not good to drink lots of coffee while pregnant but it will help to loosen you up.

I've started drinking PlumSmart juice every day..it really tastes good,and it works.  I also take colace when I need a little extra help.

I had that problem during my pregnancy. I would go days without using the bathroom. I found that eating foods with fiber really helped. Cereal was the main thing I would eat alot of. Like Raisin Bran, Frosted Mini-Wheats is also good. Drink juice and lots of water. If you are still having problems discuss it with your doctor. They know what's best for you.
