Constipation is driving me CRAZY!! Sorry but if I can't go after my first meal of the day, I cramp until the next day until I eat that first meal of the day. I know that it's what the cramping is from because this isn't the first time I have been constipated. It is still very uncomfortable and I can't seem to fix it. I have been constipated every other day now for a week. I am chugging water, juice, and eating apples. I have no idea what else to do.

I am having the same issue, so if I don't go a day, I take a peri-colace. If what is coming out if just hard you can take colace to help soften it or Miralax. If you just can't go then you can take senna which will help stimulate the colon. Peri-colace is a combination of senna and colace.

I tried Colace when it all started and it took 3days to do anything at all. I think I will try the Peri-colace. The only thing I fear with stuff like that is the cramps it can give. Which the Colace didn't cramp me and right now I am just miserable.

Thankfully until this point Im still my usaul twice a day but I also eat tons of fresh fruit and seaweed and salad with crispy turkey bacon ..yummyumm....Maybe look further into your diet and adjust it daily.

I hope it gets better for you though cus constipation is a misery. Its sometimes the effects of pregnancy and how it pushes things in all the wrong directions, I would think your OB could also give some advice on something to take if the other things you try fail.

I am doing better today. Took 2 Colace yesterday and was finally able to go today. My stomach is still a little achy but I think it's just from being constipated for almost 5days straight. Hopefully I will feel better by tomorrow.

I'm having a horrible time with this, thanks to zofran I tried just increasing fruits & drinking more water & juice with no luck then about 10 days ago I bought some fiber gummies & was taking 2 of those per day as well..still was having trouble so I increased to 3 per day which is helping. I think I'll add a stool softener too though.

Ashley is in making your lower stomach hurt? I thought after I went today that the pain would go away but it's still there. I don't feel it until I move about but it doesn't feel like round ligament pain.
