I was doing great until I hit the 3rd trimester. I already follow all of the "usual" recommendations. I am a whole food vegetarian with strong vegan and GF tendencies. I eat a TON of fiber, mostly in the form of fruits, veggies, salad, beans, and so on. Right now with the warm weather we are having I am eating mostly salad meals. I am drinking plenty of fluids. Drinking kombucha for probiotics. I have also been drinking prune juice mixed with an all natural berry juice (cant stand the taste of it!). I drink a fiber/probiotic green smoothie every morning. Sooooo.... is there anything I can take that is natural that is safe. I wouldnt take any OTC laxative, but more like something you would see at a natural food/supplement store. EVERYTHING says "ask a dr if you are pregnant" but most obs and even midwives arent sure on the natural type of supplements.
Any recommendations? Teas? Concotions? I have very little tolerance for constipation, especially when pregnant. DRIVES ME NUTS!
