Hey Mommas! I have been soooo constipated for about 2 weeks. I haven't had a bowel movement in 4 days now, and am so umcomfortable. I have taken Milk of Magnesia for the last two nights before I have gone to bed and still have not had any results. Does anyone have any comments about this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

watermelon.. lotsa watermelon lol.. really helps me when i am constipated. I have been eating it on a regular basis to help with the regulation of constipation during pregnancy. Hope that helps

Thanks! I was planning on buying a fruit tray to munch on, so that's good news. :)

My dr gave me a prenatle vitamin with stool softner and it has helped tremendously. At this point, you may try and enema? Its the only way for instant relief? Or try drinking a little bit of prune juice every day.

I started getting a little constipated about a month ago (I'm 22 weeks as of tomorrow) and I started adding a good serving of wheat germ on my smoothy in the mornings. I haven't been constipated since then. Unless of course, I don't have the wheat germ. I also increased the amount of fiber in all I eat, with oatmeal and flaxseed. I make muffins with those ingredients plus freshly juiced fruit pulp. And LOTS of water. Hope that helps!

prunes, dates,figs.....they all do the trick also drinking plenty of orange juice helps if you can stand it lol it kills me for heartburn so i cant drink it anymore

Thank you all so much for your help! Prunes have really worked, and just fruit in general and I'm going to talk to Dr. about prenatal vitamin w/stool softener. Thanks again!

Just be careful with the fruit doctor told me not to drink fruit juice at all...worried about me getting diabetes.. And I was told I can eat some maybe one a day, but thats it. If you drink could drink a cup of that, which is alright, and hey...instant laxative (at least for some)... : )

I had the same problem after taking a 16 hour road trip last month. I went to my grandmothers and she got me a bottle of Motts apple-juice. And I took Colace gentle laxative....worked wonders!!!

you could also try eating a cup of Fiber One cereal every day. I had horrible constipation and started eating that and drinking 3 liters of water a day and I am so much more comfortable now!
