You know...a thought just occured to me as I'm sitting here at work thinking I'm about to throw up. I can't remember the last time I went #2. Could that be why I'm feeling so sick and full? What is a safe laxative to take when you're pregnant? I really need some relief! Thanks.

YES, throwing up can definately be a sign of severe constipation. I know it doesn't sound delicious but prune juice works wonders. (From experience in group homes for the disabled.) Keep up your fiber intake as well as water. Call and ask your doctor if there is any thing else you could do. If you start feeling pain then you should call your OB or primary doc right away. Good luck to you!
Hello ! Lana Kay, How are you? Yes what you are feeling is quite normal and constipation is hell, you will feel very bloated and when you eat severely nausea because there's no room in your belly for food. Prune juice and foods high in fiber and plenty of fluids are your best bet, I think that you can take metamucil and that's all no laxatives are allowed unfortuneately unless prescribed by your ob.
