apparently having a 6lb baby sitting on your insides messes things up, i dont even remember when i had a decent movement. i've eaten soo many prunes and now moved onto the fiber one bars to help. and nothing

any medicines that would do the trick quick =(

Coffee and oatmeal do the trick pretty good. Are you drinking enough?

Lots of h2o plus try getting a fiber supplement. Check with Dr first. I also juice fresh veggies and fruits and drink up!

Call your OB ... they prescribed me something, but I dont remember what it was called that helped with that during a prior pregnancy

Mirlax should be safe to use it was on my list of meds ok to use. I have never used it but have given it to lots of patients and was effective

I would check with your doctor, but my OB told me that stool softeners are ok to take. That should help get things going.

yeah eating the prunes doesn't work for me either, I have to use Sunsweet prune Juice. I usually chug about 8oz and then follow that with water. Then I go to bed. When i wake up in the morning it's usually pretty easy to go. Hope you find relief soon!
