I know you can have lactalose but dont know whether you need a prescription or if ita otc. I know how uncomfortable it is, suffered right the way through. Lots of apple juice too! Nd prunes if you can stomach them!

oh hun i know what you mean, if you do fancy a laxitive fybogel is great, mild but very effective you can get it supermarkets take one sachet before bed and i bet you go in the morning, iv had to do this throughout my pregnancy as i can go days without going and end up miserable and uncomfy, sometime even the fruit and veg need a hand to get stuff out of us ladies x

Aw Amy you poor thing. I can't ofer any advice but just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you and hope you feel better soon.
I did read, on another forum, someone suggested grape juice as working really well, so maybe worth a try.
Big hugs xx

It's certainly not nice is it? I remember getting awful constipation at the end of DD1's pregnancy. Regular lactulose helped a lot!
It sounds weird, but if you can tolerate spicy food, do what I do and add jalapenos to everything!!!!!!!! That usually keeps things regular

Oh Amy - hugs!
It could well be the iron my lovely. Hope the midwife/GP can suggest something.

It will be done to the iron supplements you are taking. I had to stop taking mine as was in so much pain. Try Spatone instead, iron supplement without the nasty side effects.
