    Yep hun, and it is normal. Its just the hormonal changes going on in your body. One minute you'll be living on the loo the next you dont go for days. :)

    I had this until 20weeks or so. Fibre gel is the best thing to take. It helped me throughout it. But sometime if your completely back logged this isnt quite enough. So nip your doc who can proscribe Lactolose which is safe for use in pregnancy and is a light laxitive to help shift it :) XxxX

    I've only just become constipated over the past few days. I was absolutley fine before that! Now I'm crampy and gassy, and I go to the loo and nothing (or very little) happens! Argh!

    I think I also had loose bowels in the early days. Now I have loads of gas (wow) but not constipated. Not as regular as I used to be but once a day still. My hubby wakes me up with a bowl of meusli every morning - I'm sure that helps

    I had the runs around the time I got my BFP but in the last 10 days I've been really blocked up. It's weird, I do tend to go every day but I'm still constipated, if that makes sense?? I guess at least I'm going. Also having probs with wind - hoping it will hold off for my evening class tonight!
