    Do not use laxatives - they're not safe!! Try Fibogel, use morning and evening and you will soon notice the difference. It's a stool softener not a laxative so will make it easier to go, not make you go! xx

    Supermarkets will do it as well as Boots etc- ive found it a Godsend, it is a tad expensive but sooo worth it lol. Some doctors will put it on a prescription so maybe worth going so see your GP and tell them how much you're suffering! Also they may have something you can only get on prescription....?

    I'd buy some now for a start to get you going and see how you get on! x

    Agree with the stool softners.....I take 2 a day and have been since about 6 weeks along. The zofran causes additional constipation in addition to normal pregnancy stuff.

    I am still constipated and bleed at times, but its not nearly as bad!

    I would say the best thing to take is milk of magensia its the grossest thing ever, but it really does help with consitpation. I had to take some in my first trimester while i was taking zofran and that is the only safe thing u can take while your pregnant Good Luck :Hug:
