Try drinking metamucil at night before bed. Also, prunes and prune juice may help.

Try eating plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, and prunes are great for that if you like them. Also fruit juice. After all that, I still can't go much, but a little is better than nothing. If none of this helps, ask your dr of any specific medicines you can take. I was told stool softeners are okay, but I don't know what brands/types are okay...I didn't ask because I am not going to use them. As long as I am going a little every week I am fine with that.

Citrucel and Benefiber are okay by my OB. Lots of water with these though.

yes, fruit like apples are good for fiber. avoid white bread and other starchy stuff.

Raisin Bran has always helped me and I'm 32 weeks along right now.

I was very bad and my dr. told me to take milk of magneisa. I took it once, I has alot of gas. But I have bben fine ever since. keep in mind that your digestion is much slower now. Eat more often in smaller portions. I try to eat the same as I did before and I pay the price. Its worth it....Good Luck

I was told to take a stool softener named Peri-Colace..theres a generic one at Kmart that you can get too. It works pretty good.

Hi, I am 33 weeks and about 3 weeks I was really constipated. Do you have a place around your house that makes smoothies, like Jamba Juice or anything like that? I went to Jamba Juice and I got a smoothie that had blueberries in it and then I got a fiber booost. I went for about three days and the first day it helped a little bit and the second it was 100% better. So whenever I am a little clogged up, I just get a smoothie. Hope that helps!

I was really constipated. Now, at 8 weeks, it is getting a little better. I started doing a yoga video at night and think it really helped.
