Take fiber supplements! Like metamucul. (sp) I heard that you dont want to be constipated for the birth, which will bring on huge hemoroids. Take 3 in the am and 3 in the pm before meals, this should help within a day. Good luck.

Hi sara, I'm glad that the problem resolved on its own but for those out there that it doesn't resolve.....try the old grandma favorite.....prune juice..... I had to start taking an iron supplement and that made me really constipated. I drank about 6 oz. of prune juice and found out really quick that it was too much for me...=).... It only takes a little.
