    Called the OB...cause honestly this constipation issue is kinda irritating...my OB said that I could use colace....thank goodness... cause yesterday I felt that I had to try and poop every single hour and little to nothing came out....it was quite irritating....hopefully the colace will help, cause going to the bathroom every single hour is a but much in my opinion....

    Oh good! Ya I was always told colace is fine. If you want to try and use more natural way, prune juice (oh yum, I know). Also you can add an activia a day to your diet...I also like fiber one bars but I'm not sure how that works with you monitoring BS. Hope it gets better (honestly, It probably won't just a preggo thing) but you can make the constipation more manageable.

    I can handle fiber bars, I can't stand yogurt, of any kind, I have tried high fiber, and all that other good stuff, and honestly I don't like taking medications if I can help it, but I have been trying to figure out a way to deal with the constipation for a while now, and I really haven't had to deal with it before. Today, in a half an hour period, I was in the bathroom like four times....trying to go to poop...I can't work and be in the bathroom and being in the bathroom half the time....so I will try the colace...and go from there....and now I am beginning to wonder if I haven't actually lost weight.....arg

    Milk of magnesia works wonders for me! Put it in the fridge first though and get cherry flavor. It's on my approved list the Ob gave me.

    Yeah, my "healthy pregnancies, healthy babies" nurse said I could take a laxative if it gets to be too much. I'm basically going like two days w/o a good poop and then I have an "attack" of bad poop cramps, pooping the harder stuff out, followed by the softer, followed by basically liquid. I did that on Friday night and last night. Not so much fun. And I've been doing the veggie/fiber/water stuff, too.

    Yup.... and I am still in the stage where I have no appetite, so I am trying to eat something pretty frequently...attempting to do the healthy eating stuff, but sometimes the healthy stuff just makes me sick.....so......I guess I will try the colace and see if it helps.......

    Pear juice also works if you don't like the taste of prune juice.

    Thanks for the pear juice info....maybe might try that.......
    Question.......do you guys who have issues with constipation also feel that it makes it so they can't empty their bladder completely? I only seem to notice it when I am constipated.......

    I haven't had that issue with my bladder, but it pretty much effects my WHOLE digestive system. I woke up on Friday night with the worst reflux I've had in my life and there was no good reason for, except that my whole system was backed up and there was nowhere to go back back up.

    It does make it harder for me to pee, but my bladder/rectum/uterus are mildly prolapsed so everything affects everything down there for me .

    Well....I weighed myself this morning, after finally being able to poop some....and not only have I NOT gained weight, I have in fact, lost, 2 additional pounds.....all because I was finally able to poop....
    On the plus side, DH is grilling some chicken that I will hopefully be able to keep down.......

    I went in...this doc was less doom and gloom than my previous one.....she didn't even mention a PICC thank goodness... (the previous one said she was going to put a PICC in me if I didn't gain any weight).
    She said that sometimes we just have to do the best that we can and go from there. She says that my weight loss seems to have plateaued, and that they don't get worried until I have lost 10% of my body weight, which I have almost done if starting from my initial weight to now... she said to continue to do as I have been doing and call if anything becomes worrisome...
    Baby's heartbeat was at 155-156 which was exactly what it was 2 weeks ago....She said for me to just keep my next appointment on the 6th and go from there.
