probiotics, the liquid drinkable kind!
aloe juice, or prune juice. EmergenC packs, keep drinking them every hour or so until *something* happens!

good luck!

fruit (not bananas or blueberries, though)

Prune juice and tons of water, plus whole grain cereals. Raisins also help. Sometimes walking will stimulate things.

I've read that if you're not a caffeinated drink person (particularily hot coffee), will get things a movin (and it does work, I stopped drinking coffee while pregnant and it has helped me a number of times).

I read in a local mommy newspaper that one of the writers acupuncturists recommends for constipation in her toddler to give her a warm bath followed by putting bits of soap into the anus for immediate relief. I have not tried this myself.

Lots of hot liquids help, like hot milk, brothy soups, or hot herbal teas like chamomile.

Steamed okra works wondersssss.

Not sure if you're okay today or not , but if you're still looking for ideas I find that ground flax seed sprinkled on oatmeal is awesome!!! I used to suffer from constipation a lot (especially when pregnant), but since I've started doing this everything works like a charm!

Coffee does it for me EVERY time, and I only drink coffee about twice a week, just in case I "leave something behind".
