    i've been having very regular bowel movements, roughly every other day. Sounds normal right?? In general i usually only have a movement every 7-9 days (if im lucky), i know crazy right! Without grossing you all out too much, i'm very constipated at the min too, and my stools are very dark. :blush: sorry

    so any1 else had experience with regular bowel movements when in early pregnancy??

    progesterone slows down your digestion, thus causing constipation. Fybogel is my friend right now too!

    so Im not sure that going more often is a good sign. Have you been to the doctor about your bowels? going once a week really isnt normal! you should be going every day. x
