i suffered the same problem at about the same time, and i headed straight to the supermarket and bought a tin of prunes!!! half a tin later and an hour or so i was fine, so now if i go more than 3 days withour going i just eat some prunes (i quite like them) hopefully this will help you. xx

Post subject: Constipation!
I have lived with this problem all my life but never has it been so bad as now. I am 13 weeks pregnant. I take senokot laxatives. Probably not supposed to but it is the only thing that helps me. Having said that, they haven't worked today! I know how you feel, it is awful and really affects your life. Good luck. I may try prunes!

i saw the doc yesterday for constipation, im 15 wks and have suffered with it for a few weeks now,
he gave me lactose solution to take twice a day...im hoping it works

i suggest you see a dcotor as the dosages are different in pregnancy than they are normally...
when i spoke to the pharmasist a few days before they wouldnt reccomend anything to me, they said i had to see the doctor.
