i have had very little constipation so far. i never had it before but everywhere i read that it is a normal early pregnancy sign. i have had my progesterone checked and it is normal. anyone else not get constipated? am i too early for this symptom? if anything my tummy gets "bubbly" and upset when i eat something that disagrees with me. no diarrhea though... just wondering about other people's experiences...

hi..i was fine and didnt have problems with constipation till i took zofran (for extreme vomiting etc) in my 8th week and then my constipation started. Before that, no problems whatsoever...

Constipation is quite common, but a lot of women do not get constipated either. It is one of the many symptoms that you may or may not have. I am 38 weeks pregnant and have not been constipated whatsoever during my entire pregnancy. Make sure you drink lots of water and fluids and eat fruits etc, which may help keep it away!

thanks for the responses. i had a m/c in april so i am questioning every symptom (or lack of symptom- LOL) this time around.

I didn't have problems w/ constipation until my second trimester. Many people don't have problems w/ this until later or not at all!

Well, I'm a bit over 18 weeks pregnant now and I haven't been constipated at all. Before pregnancy I would ALWAYS be it's like a dream. LOL. I suppose I'm just the oddball here.

You should feel happy that you arent constipated, I am so constipated and bloated with this preganacy. I am in my 3rd mths , but god am i uncomfortable already. This pregnancy is so diffrent then the first.

Count yourself lucky! I'm 28 weeks now, but had it most the way through! I'd love to not have it for a while! Enjoy it while it lasts! And good luck with your pregnancy! I'm sure everything will be fine!
