So I am currently 31+3 and have suffered for some time whilst pregnant with constipation for which I was taking lactulose. Initially this helped and was a great relief. After my 28 week blood tests, I was given iron tablets to take and was warned it could make me bunged up - I already had gone from being able to go to the loo daily to it being perhaps 4-5 days between each movement. Anywho, I carried on taking my lactulose and noticed that my movements became more difficult but still every 4-5 days and that after each dose of lactulose after about 30 minutes, I would end up with the worse wind in the world. I said to DH that I didnt feel the lactulose was doing anything other than give me wind and I would stop taking it. I stopped taking it last Friday and have noticed in the last 2 days I have gone to the loo daily, but it has been a sudden urge to go but the movements havent been loose.
Has anyone else had a similar experience?
