I'm so constipated.
Was on the loo for an hour - trying every position imaginable on the toilet seat - with nothing to show for my efforts! (sorry for tmi, but it feels like it is twice the size of my bum!)
Can anyone else relate? xx
I have horrendous constipation no matter what I eat during pregnancy, not even prunes, although they help a littlle. Hemmoirrhoids can become really serious. I have seen several doctors about both issues and they ALL tell me the same thing: metamucil dissolvable fiber.
I have 2 drinks a day of this mixed into orange juice and it works like a charm;-)
If I forget even one drink, I'm borderline unable to go for the day. Sorry you gotta deal with those wacky hormones!
