little_snowball, unfortunately bloating and constipation are a couple of symptoms that tend to follow you through your whole pregnancy. But you won't notice the bloating as much when you start getting a bigger tummy. My bloating was worst in the first 6 weeks of pregnancy, but constipation just has a way of stivking with you unless you actively try to make it go away. Here are some things that I do to help. Drink 1 cup 100% apple juice a day, eat lots of things high in fiber, avoid too much dairy and antacids because they can be linked to constipation. keeping active and drowning the constipation with a lot of liquids. That helps me gently keep everything moving without resorting to metamucil or prune juice. Good luck!

Hi there, yes Erica is right..it may stay with you the entire pregnancy but changing you diet will help. It is always one of the earliest signs I get that I am pregnant. I stay away from anything white (bread, sugar, rice, etc..) Stick with whole grains and lots of fruit (except banana) and 100% juices. A lot of water (8-10 gla__ses a day).
