how many weeks were you guys when constipation kicked in(thats if you got it)or does it vary?

I got it around 8 wks. It's really annoying because I'll go days before I can actually go, and then when I do, it's a lot! Not to be gross but hey, it's true. I actually start feeling all bloated and really fat and then when I finally go it's like I lost 3 lbs! It sucks! Sometime drinking coffee in the morning will help move things along. I quit smoking and that used to help too. Ha ha!

I am around 3 months along and am having a really hard time going number 2. Will the extra strain have any affect on the baby? Drank some caffine today so I am hoping for better tomorrows lol

I'd had it all through my pregnancy. I'm at week 14 and it seems to get worse the further along I get. I'll be constipated for 5 or 6 days. It sucks.

Mine started at about 8 weeks and I still have it time to time. I was told to drank prune juice. My doc told me to eat lots of fruits and whole wheat. I have been doing this and it seems to be working. I think it varies cause a friend of mine who was cinstipated before had no problems while pregnant or maybe did not notice. Hope the tips help.

I started to get it right away and I would get really grumpy, so I started to drink prune juice and strawberry bran bites and that helped but it wasn't until i started walking that i went regularly
