Constapation ?? I promise not to be too gross, but I need help!

 So sorry gals, but I need help and don't know who to ask. I am about 10 weeks preggo. The last 10 or 12 days I haven't been able to poop. I will seriously go like 5 or 6 days with nothing. Then have a really small and painful bowel movement.
I thought maybeI wasn't getting enough fiber so I have been taking fiber supplements. Not helping at all. I don't know if it might be the medication I am taking. My doctor has me taking vitamin B6 for nausea as well as Ondansetron for nausea. Withouth these I'm so sick that I don't want to get out of bed.
So help! What do you guys think?

Are you drinking enough water?  I would greatly up your fluid intake and maybe add in a stool softener if that doesn't help.  Unfortunately, constipation is just one of those things that are difficult to avoid during pregnancy.

Also, your doctor can give you a stool softener.

 I've been taking Miralax and I can't drink anything but water. I use to drink soda all the time but this baby doesn't like it. Every time I drink a soda I get sick. So I'm drinking at least 2to4 big bottles of water every day.
I'll try stool softener too. Thank you!
