Unbelievable amounts of fluids, flax seed meal or flax seed oil in whatever you can smuggle it into, lots of high-fiber foods, very little dairy. Also I wonder if you're taking a prenatal or something that is constipating you. If you are, try just folic acid for a few days instead of your prenatal vitamin and see if that helps. Sometimes the iron in the prenatals is just too much for your intestinal tract to handle.

My prenatal is iron free...I take a liquid veggie source iron and I did before I got pregnant and it is not constipating...I drink tons of water and do flax...maybe I will switch back to my multivitamin from the prenatal...see if that helps...I take folic acid anyway...I don't eat dairy...

Some prenatal vitamins have a stool softener in them-fyi

I'd drink lots of water and maybe exercise? I don't know you and your habits so you could be super exerciser woman but I think that is supposed to help get things going too
hth!
