Fiber... LOTS of it.. Stay hydrated.. as in 8 glasses of water a day.. Getting dehydrated is the leading cause of constipation!

"Auto-immune disorder" refers to 1 of many auto-immune diseases. such as Chron's, Lupus, or Hepatitis. There is no such thing as auto-immune deficiency. You may be thinking of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, which is also known as AIDS. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

I know exactly how you feel.I am also 10 weeks. I woke up this morning with a stomach ache because I have also been constipated the last 2 days. This morning I drank a glass of apple juice and drank a bottle of water on top of it and I went and walked and it helped. I finally had a bowel movement. You can also take Metamucil or Benefiber if you want. Just follow the directions on the bottle. I have also found that eating applesauce or cereals with fiber in them help. If you drink a lot of milk you might want to cut down on that for a couple of days. Also walk a little each day, this helps the bowels to start moving. Good luck.

Lots of fibre and water-exercise can also help like walking. If you JUST have fibre with not enough of your daily water intake then this may make you more constipated-Try having some processed bran in the morning for breakfast or adding some wheatgerm to your breaky OR you could add a teaspoon of psyllium husks to a smoothie or some juice each morning.

The best thing for constipation is water, drink lots, spend a day drinking nothing but water so no tea, coffee, soda etc just water. Eat plenty of water fruit as well and cut out binding foods like bread, pasta, rice and meat that day as well. Hopefully that will get things moving!

Recommending fruit and veggies- preferably in raw condition. You can also ask if something like Colace ( stool softener) is safe during pregnancy. I had to get my prenatal Vit seperated, meaning that i could not tolerate taking the iron supplement in it on a daily basis ( caused stomach upset and constipation for me) See if that is an option.

And what will you progress to once the satisfaction of this prank wears off? Okay, she's a jerk. Endure it or talk to her about it. Seriously. Are you any better by doing this? Take a step back for a moment and tell me how this sounds: "Oh, I'm going to make my roommate crap herself just because I don't like her." What a mature way to deal with a problem.
