Re: Painful Cramping and Constipation
I am 27 weeks pregnant. I know and i can understand what you are going through. I went through it all. unfortunately there is no exact sience that can help this problem. You have to learn your own body and do what works for you. in my first trimester, i had sever problem with this issue to the point that i would cry everytime i would go to the bathroom. Stool softener or mike of magnesia were not a good option for me only they would make this situation worst! Prune juice didn't do much for me either. the only one thing that worked is the prune itself. That will work! and talk to your doctor about it also. This is a common problem in pregnancy so you can ask your doctor.
There were times in the past that i thought i am going to miscarry the baby in the bathroom. It is very scary, and painful. Just hang in there, and take prunes. sometimes there is not much you can do anyways, just try to hang in there.
Best of luck to you ,
