    Urgh it got me.....the dreaded c-word :(. The pressure is awful, it's making my back pain even worse and I'm struggling to sit down :(. I've got the doc's thursday afternoon but will have to take a trip to the chemist tomorrow me thinks. The fruit hasn't been working and have to be careful with fibre cos of wheat intolerance which makes me constipated :roll:

    Lactulose is foul so hoping to avoid it and once drank a whole bottle of syrup of figs and had not so much as even a rabbit poo. Any suggestions???? xxxxxxxxxxx

    I've gone the other way since tri 1 - think I prefer that rather than not being able to go!!! When I had the C word in tri 1 a pint of fresh OJ had a very rapid effect...

    I've put it down to the painkillers I've been given for my back so have stopped them as the constipation is just adding to the pressure. Have tried pushing and my whole body went into a kind of spasm, it was like being electrocuted. Am so glad no-one saw the look on my face lol xxxxxxxx

    Oh yes, codeine makes you constipated :( I know that only too well.

    Have you tried some dried apricots/prunes

    Once the lazy sods at boots get to work I'll be down there like a shot....how inconsiderate lol don't they know there's a constipated pregnant woman in the town?????? And then to the greengrocers for oranges, apricots, prunes, plums you name it lol

    I'm a bit worried cos I've gone into spasm and finding it hard to pee properly....will ring the mw if I haven't had a good wee by lunchtime :(

    Prune juice, dates, beans, lentils, pulses and best of all is bran :hug: Don't let the constipation get too bad, or else you might have problems with haemorrhoids, which I did, and I would advise anyone to do whatever it takes in order to avoid them.

    Bran and beans got me through (I can't make myself drink prune juice, it's vile); you'll be fine if you go on a super fibre diet. It does take a while for the piles to go away, even after the constipation is gone, but don't be discouraged, hun, they will disappear in the end if you stick to a good diet :hug:

    Sainsbury's do some good Cauldron products with lentils and chickpeas. I have this a LOT http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/#/sa...tarian_food/cauldron_lentil_dhansak_350g.html
