Laxative Use During Pregnancy

Jessica - May 10

I am Bulimic and 11 weeks pregnant, I find it very hard to stop using the laxatives, I tried once but I swelled out and became very constipated. I have been bulimic for 6 years. I am scared that this will hurt the baby, do you have any advice?

Take prune juice...it has been found by doctors that the cause of death in Bulimic women is heart-attack due to no pota__sium in their blood whatsoever...prune juice will provide you with TONS of pota__sium AS WELL AS "get things moving"...if you don't like the taste...get over it..if you're bulimic...it's you AND your baby's life at stake, a little-or even alot of prune juice is really good for you, think of that while you drink it, and it may help it go down better...I honestly LOVE the taste, but that's just me..some people hate it..give it a try..remember that bulimia, then heart-attack then death by starvation after 15 years in a hospital is what killed Terry Schiavo...you don't wanna be in her shoes..BELIEVE ME! But just for the pota__sium...you can always eat bananas-everybody loves those! The only problem w/bananas though, they actually make constipation worse! So your best bet is prune juice...and it's not addicting...just plain old good for you!
