Constipation HELP! StraightFromTheTap 2 kids; Houghton Lake, MI, United States 937 posts

I haven't had a normal bowel movement in a week. :(
I'm miserable, and jealous of my 1 1/2 year old who's been going twice a day the past 2 days.
I never had constipation with my son.
What can I take? I'm 13 weeks.

Prunes or prune juice!

I don't have any and my food stamps don't come in until tomorrow. :(



I'm cramping really bad.



I just found some colace from when I had my son. Can I take that?

Try eating lots of roughage. Raw broccoli and carrots seem to do the best trick for me. Herbal tea can help too, just stay away from ginseng and caffeinated stuff, since you're only 13 weeks, and google the ingredients on the tea before you drink it to make sure it's safe.



Other than that... milk is good, and yogurt. Believe it or not, that Activia actually works.



And if none of that works, try an over the counter stool softener. I wouldn't try any laxatives though, since they're so harsh and make you cramp...

Mira lax! Stimulant free stool softener. I take it every other day! I highly highly recommend it!

High fibre cereal. When I was constipated I ate cereal in the morning and 3 days later it worked wonders and I haven't been constipated since.

I took zofran last night. I took it with my son too and never got constipation.

I didn't last time either. This time it KILLED me. I don't go for 3-4 days after I take it.
