This is so frustrating for me...I just got my BFP 2 days ago and I haven't been able to 'go' already for almost 2 weeks. I've been taking colace, not helping...eating more fiber and lots of water...not helping. last night took milk of magnesia...hasnt helped yet, so this morning i took another colace and 400 mg of mag citrate and hoping to have ANY kind of action today.
im gonna go buy some prunes today, but is there anything else that has helped any of you? i was thinking a chewable fiber supplement but im not sure what is safe.
thanks

I'm only about 4 1/2 weeks and I was constipated for about 4 nights in a row and had some relief from it last night. Not sure what I did different, but I was happy for one night of comfort!

I know it's weird, but I did this with DS too, I go back and forth from very loose stools, going ALL the time, to constipated for a couple days. It sure doesn't help on top of the nausea! I hope you get some action soon! I know how miserable that can be.
