I know this is a little TMI but when it feels like i have to go poop nothing comes out. I sit there on the toilet for 10-15 mins pushing. Ive read some things on google and they say its a sign of preterm. This has been going on since i was 26 weeks. I have a dr appointment in 5 days i cant deal with this anymore. HELP!!

It sounds like constipation. Take a stool softener- usually most OBs and midwives suggest Colace!

I've also been told senna is safe and more natural. Sounds like constipation rather than ptl. Always call your provider though if you are unsure. Better to have your mind put to ease. :-)

I am 27 weeks and have had the same issue, I was told add a bunch of fiber and I did with good results. My doc said the to many bowel movements in a day is a sign because that can be a sign of contractions stirring things up.

I had terrible constipation with my 1st. ALL BRAN or ALL BRAN BUDS was a lifesaver for me. It's  all natural and good for you to eat. You will poop the next day the most satisfying poop you ever took I promise!
