I had the same problem and was constipated for a week! Under doctor recommendation I tried taking stool softener/laxative pills, but it only gave me horrible gas. I found the best cure was an 8oz cup of prune juice every day, or half a cup of black coffee with no sugar or a raisin bran muffin. I get tired of each so that's why I give myself options.

lol take Colace. It's safe for pregnancy and works. Or Citracel (tablets) daily help too.

I would not take that without Dr's okay, I was on another board and someone took it at 17 weeks and ended up in the ER with a bleed.:/

I know of  a free resource that can answer your question. Texas Pregnancy Riskline 1-800-733-4727. They deal exclusively with exposures during pregnancy and can tell you if there are any risks associated with a particular medication. They were very helpful to me.
