    Its perfectly normal hun, make sure you drink plenty of water & eat plenty of fruit & wholegrain foods. I suffered quite bad with my other 3 so when I was put on iron tabs @ 9 weeks I was dreading it, funnily enough I don't seem to be suffering as bad yet (famous last words).

    I'm not too bad, either.
    I have a few days where I get constipated, but I don't worry, because within a day or two each time, I'm "moving" again, and empty out.

    I thought I had constipation about a month ago, but it turns out it was only for about 5 hours. I bought some Lactulose anyway, just in case I needed it later on. It was a Fridya, so I didn't want to be left for the entire weekend without anything!

    But other than that, I've been fine :) Makes a difference, because I felt terrible with MS and fatigue in the first tri. I'm actually doing pretty well at the moment.

    I found eating FIRBRE/BRAN for breakfast every morning, turned me regular within 5 days. Definitely give it a try. I am more regular on my daily bran than what I ever was before I was pregnant.

    As soon as I stop eating it (when I went on holiday the other week), I find that I am no longer regular. So...keep eating it!!! lol.

    I am completely normal - however I drink hot water as my substitute for tea and coffee all the time and I think that helps!!

    I'm far less constipated now than I was pre-pregnancy! But I have been craving seeded bread & a lots of fruit so that would do it! Plus I'm eatting far more now than before I got pregnant so there is more for my bowel to process...

    I was dreading constipation, but this has been a breeze :D

    I've become extremely regular as well, most days first thing in the morning... although if I'm sick the night before (ms worst in the evenings) then I miss a day, or go later. It's pretty predictable at this stage! I'm much happier with that than the alternative!
