I was good at ‘going’ just last week, and then in the last few days I’ve been super constipated! the other day i woke up at 2:30am because i felt the urge to go, but couldn’t!! I haven’t taken anything yet, but when i found out that I was pregnant, my nurse sent me a form that had the medications that were safe during pregnancy. for constipation it says this:
Usually dietary changes such as use of bran cereals, whole grain breads, fruits, juices, and drinking lots of water will
relieve constipation. If you continue to have a problem, try the stool softener Colace, Metamucil, Fibercon,
Citrucel, Milk of Magnesia or Senekot. These products do not cause dependency and may be taken up to three
I have Colace at home, and I have Metamucil so I may have to resort to that. Anyone use any of these things that really helped them?
It’s weird though because I knew that pregnancy could cause constipation so I have been extra cautious in the foods that I have been eating. flaxseed in my oatmeal, yogurt, lots of fruits, lots of water, pomegranate, etc. ugh. constipation is the worst feeling!!!
I am 6 weeks pregnant as of this past Tuesday. I hope next Thursday, which will be my first ultrasound, comes fast. I need some kind of confirmation, something, anything, to keep me in check!
