    I'm suffering really badly, pains everywhere around my tummy... thought it was to do with the baby but I think it might be constipation.

    Does anyone know the best way to get rid of it? I eat soooo much fruit and veg, but I'm coeliac so I can't have bran or wholemeal bread.

    I was wondering if laxatives are safe but all I can find online is it says to onsult your doctor.

    Any advice please? :)

    I am coliac also and use pure orange. Other than that you can get fybogel off the doc its a natraural fibre drink thats gluten free I was on that for years as same as you , it can be took during pregnancy. . rotten stuff but works.

    There are cereals though that claim to have fibre in them like sun mesa flakes, there are two one is gluten and wheat free and other is just wheat free, stay away from the just wheat free one as its not for coaliacs.

    milk mans OJ works for me! its like laxative lol

    I used fibresure when I was having this issue not sure if you are allowed it. Its just powder you add to water (tasteless) and it soon gets you going. Gives you a bit of wind though lol but worth it!

    My dr prescribed me lactulose and a lil bit of that and I was going within 5mins..!
    You can buy it too, doesn't need to be prescribed by docs.

    A lot of times dehydration causes constipation too. Maybe up how much water you're drinking and see if helps your digestive tract start working again

    As Rae suggested, lots of water. I have been drinking loads of water since I got pregnant and haven't been constipated. I've read that laxatives aren't recommended but you can use stool softeners.
