    :growlmad: My ass hurts!!!! I posted last week about worrying that straining was going to hurt the baby and that I had a baseball size poop in there...but I've been drinking water, eating prunes, using suppositories, eating fiber....and NOTHING is working!!! I already have hemmorhoids...and they are bleeding profusely now everytime I go. Anyone have ANY suggestions?? Its hard and big every single time...I'm sooo frustrated with this! Sorry for the info overload...I'm just tired of this :wacko:

    I just give in and take a mild laxative, but honestly if nothing's helping go to your GP, he will be able to prescribe you one that is not harmful to bubba :)

    A bit embarassing but it beats having a bleeding butt~ and dreading having to go every time :hugs:

    I take Lactulose every day to prevent the extreme owwww that I was suffering. It's perfectly safe for pregnant women and loosens everything without making you explosive.

    Erm, it's a clear sugary tasting liquid that I take in a glass of water. The pharmacist here gave it to me when I explained my problem. You might need a prescription for it there, not too sure.
    It's a stool softener rather than a laxative and it's SUCH a godsend.

    :( .. im in the same boat. I've drunk so much pure orange im surprised i've not been tangoed !!. Nothing seems to work so i may just take up your suggestions with the lactulose. I don't know if they'll give me it cause i have digestive issues as it is, but i can't go on like this.
