digestion issues (TMI?)
Mon, 07-04-2011 - 12:28am

Is anyone else having digestion problems? I don't know if it's the hot weather or what but I just feel terrible. Last night I could not go and actually had to take a dulcolax, which solved the problem but still made me feel terrible. I just feel like nothing is moving. I never had it this bad in my other pregnancies.

Any tips? I know I need to drink more water...ahhh!

I'm on a daily regimen of dulcilax, Metamucil and high fiber cereal. I always get bad constipation when pregnant. This regimen has worked for me though. I guess it could be the heat since your body requires more water.

I've had this issue since day one and they prescribed me Colace which obviously you can buy OTC too. They said to take it every day I feel like I'm having issues that it's safe during pregnancy. I ususally take it 1-3 days in a row and relief! Good Luck!

Are you taking any anti nausea meds? Zofran is famous for causing huge constipation issues..

I've been constipated this entire pregnancy. For me it's not for lack of water and I know it's normal during pg, but I'm probably not eating enough fiber-rich foods either.
