Increase your fiber intake gradually over a few days. Bran flakes or bran muffins for breakfast is a good start. Switch from white to whole grain bread. There's also a product called Metamucil that you can get in any pharmacy that will help.

I've been taking apple pectin pills; they are all natural and they seem to help. If you are desperate, you can talk to your doctor about safe laxatives... and maybe you'll want to consider an enema.... I'm in the same boat as you. During my first pregnancy, I was showing by 10 weeks. Hope this helps.
