Hi. Oh my gosh! I haven't been able to go in four days. I am so uncomfortable it is awful. I am going on 9 weeks this week and this constipation thing is a new experience. Blah!

When I had constipation before... my doc suggested tons of water, bananas and exercise... If you haven't exercised much before like me... I don't think it's wise to start now... but net surfing... will offer some other suggestions... Let me know the different types that work for you all... so I can try them to... it the constipation pops back up.

What can be done about this? I have the most awful feeling in my gut, like I have to go but I can't, and it feels like gas bubbles - any suggestions?

stay away from rice products-they bind you up...i heard oatmeal is supposed to help loosen it

I'm in the same boat, I have not gone to the bathroom in about 3 days!Someone told me it was because of all the Iron in the prenantal vitamins that make you constipated..is that true?

yes its from the prenatal vitamins, what works for me is water, we should be drinking more water than usual anyways but it realy helps, also you can take fiber con but no more than twice a day.
