    I go back and forth. I'm constipated and then I go go go. Lol. It's miserable to just be stuck. I hope the colace helps.

    I haven't had a lot of PG symptoms this go around...other than the feeling of my blood sugar being constantly low. My boobs aren't even really sore. Haha....I know its terrible but I am wishing for more symptoms just for reassurance!

    I am on 2 colace a day,per docs suggestion. He also suggested Metamucil. And I take prenatal that has a bit of extra magnesium to help move things along as well. They are the Solaray prenatals that you can only find in health food stores, but I love them and would order them online if I had to. Maybe try a different prenatal if you can and add Metamucil. Hope you feel better soon!

    I feel for you! Constipation has been awful for me too. Miralax has helped, but I don't really want to take it unless I am seriously uncomfortable.

    I don't take the prenatals doc prescribe for that very reason. I found a prenatal at Whole Foods call SimplyOne. They have a Women's vitamin as well. It made from plants and herbs and tolerated well. I love it and have been taking it for a year now. They are huge but easy to swallow.

    I have enough gas to keep a hot air ballon afloat for weeks!! And boy do I have to try and keep the farting from getting too loud by squeezing them out a little at a time. The kids keep asking about the fart smell and I play innocent of course....
