    I had this from the minute I found out I was pregnant. I'd be on the loo ages in pain and just feeling so helpless. I've solved this by eating bran flakes with yoghurt every morning for breakfast. I've also heard that prune juice works.

    Good luck, I know it's awful, but it won't last forever!

    ok thanks :) im sharing your pain!
    eating bran flakes would make it even harder to go i thought?

    Just wondered if we were allowed something to ease it a bit

    Try Fybogel, you can get it easily and it helped me. It's not even that bad to take, but I hadn't gone in five days and it was sooo uncomfortable and within a few hours of taking it I was going. It's definitely safe! You can use as a preventative to I think, take one a day and helps it all work a bit better hehe good luck x
