    Hey girls, Ive been really blocked up (tmi) the last week, and I keep getting pains in my tummy because of it. Ive read that its safe to take a small dose of lactulose whilst pregnant. Ive tried fruit and all and nothing is working. So just wondering has anyone else taken lactulose whilst pregnant? xxx

    Don't think so, I asked the chemist and was given a liquid (can't remember what it's called). It wasn't much x
