Ok, we all know what taking iron does to our digestion, I tried the spatone but it didnt bring my HB level up it just stopped it going down any further so now I'm on good old fashioned iron tablets. *REALLY* paranoid I'm gonna do a big black poo when it comes to pushing baby out so looking for tips! I think you used to be able to ask the midwife for a laxative in early labour, is that still the case? I cannot stomach fybogel and cant get the other kind (benefibre/fibresure) locally... I've tried everywhere! Maybe I should just resort to 2 bowla of allbran every day, what do you think?
