I am 6 weeks and 2 days now. I have been taking pictures every week for the last few weeks, and I am noticing some bloat. I wonder if I am constipated. Ugh...such an awful feeling. I even think i'm getting crankier too! Ha-ha. I thought the extremely sore breast, fatigue and random bouts of emotions was enough. Now I have to deal with constipation?! Seriously, it's been a few days since I went at all, but a week since it was normal.
Is anyone else having this problem too? I have my first scan (to see the heartbeat) on 12/20, so I will be sure to let my doctor know.

Hey Hun, I have been severely constipated was only able to go about once every 6 or 7 days. Now at almost 33 weeks I can't stop going, it's ridiculous. Like there's no room in my body for anything else ha ha. Think I am having my pre labour clear out a bit early but it seems to go on and on lol. Take heart in the fact it doesn't last forever, drink plenty of water and pure orange, lots of fruit n veg, and linseed is supposed to be good too x

I went to my GP this morning about something else but mentioned my stomach cramps I have been suffering from and he seems to think it is bowl/constipation related and has given me some lactulose. Hoping it gets rid of my horrid cramps! And the chemist was great. I said my GP had given me this but I might be able to buy something over the counter as I havent had my pregnancy exemption form/card yet and the chemist said he would tick that i had an exemption form for me. Good man!

lactulose is brilliant. i too have been quite constipated since i got pregnant (am 11 weeks and 5 days). it eases the discomfort to for me
