    Does anyone else have problems with constipation and confuse these pains with worrying twinges?
    I keep on getting slightly worrying twinges which do actually disappear after I've 'been' but it is a worry nonetheless. I also have tmi... really hard poo too so the whole going to the loo thing is a bit of a pain really! My diet is good and I don't normally sufferin this way but also wonder if I'm too early in my pg to correlate the two?

    I too am having constipation problems. I suffer from IBS, which gives me the opposite of constipation and to be honest I much prefer it that way. I hate having this problem. I must admit my diet hasn't been that good since getting my :bfp:

    I hope your feeling better soon x

    I sometimes have moments where I get the feeling and have to go at that instant, but now most of the time I'm definitely constipated!

    I have been feeling like I have to go all day, but I can't! And my belly hurts, maybe I'll go pick up another veggie and dip tray from the store...it seemed to help last week.

    I'm the same.... I used to be very regular, but now not at all.

    Actually, I had exactly what you mentioned last night. I ate quite a big substantial meal and had what was in between trapped wind and constipation for about an hour, SUCH PAIN!

    TMI sorry, I havent actually 'relieved' myself yet.... but the pains have gone away....thankfully.

    Hope you feel better soon!!!
