Does anyone have a recommendation on a supplement to take for constipation. This is probably going to be TMI, but this is the right place for it, right? I remember with my son, I had some issues and my mother also said she always had constipation issues, but this time seems a bit excessive and early in the pregnancy for me. With my son, it was during 3T, but this time, it's over the past month or so. I honestly haven't had a BM since either Sunday night or Monday morning. This happened last week and it was an awful weekend, let me tell you. I do walk, my prenatal doesn't have a lot of iron in it, but I do eat enough in my diet to get the daily iron that I need. I walk daily, some days a further distance for longer than others. I also drink 2-3 L of water per day. I may not get enough fiber daily, that could be it. But this is unbelievable. I have a pharmacy up the road from my office and I will be leaving work early today to take DS to a dentist appointment, so I can pick something up.
So, is Metamucil okay to take while pregnant? Or is there a supplement pill that I can take? This is making me miserable.
Thanks in advance.
