Talk to your DR, he or she will probably recommend a stool softener such as Kolace, or some vegetable based laxative. Your DR might also alter your Pre Natal pill to something with a little less iron. Good luck it's almost over.

What is your age ? It MIGHT be any number of things, from endometriosis to constipation.....so why take a chance ? This has been going on intermittently for OVER A MONTH !!! (Or so it sounds, since you are tracking your cycles closely). You should see your doctor or go to an ER as soon as possible. I'm assuming you've exhausted the typical remedies of drinking lots of fluids, getting lots of fiber, trying a mild stool softener or laxative, or a fiber product like Metamucil, or tried an enema (Fleet is a common brand) haven't you ???? Finally, have you considered the fact that you may be PREGNANT !!?? And, knowing this is a possibility, you've stopped smoking, drinking, or drugs, right ??? PLEASE at least CALL your doctor this afternoon and talk to the nurse....you shouldn't let it go on over the weekend ! Good Luck ! OH MY GOODNESS !! Miss, I know that you are growing up quickly, but you need an adult to help you with this ! If your family is not able to guide you, go to the school nurse, or a friend's mom, or the librarian or swimming pool manager, or any female adult that you feel that you can confide in. Please get a trusted adult involved !

I am 29 weeks pregnant and have been having this problem for more than a month now. What is helping me is drinking water, eating lots of fiber, yogurt, milk, prunes, mangoes, granola. But this week I started taking Colace (my Ob/Gyn recommended it) and so far, after like 5 hours I was able to go to the bathroom, with less pain. Be careful and try different things until your constipation gets better because it can cause hemorroids and those can be painful. Good luck and congratulations in your baby!

My doctor told me to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, as well as drink a lot of water. I started eating a banana or an apple with my breakfast, salad for lunch, and with dinner I usually eat some kind of vegetables, while snacking on fruit throughout the day. This helped me a lot. I always ate like this, but for about a week or so I wasn't eating right and I could really feel the difference. Try the fruit and veggies for a couple of days. If it doesn't work, make an appointment with your doctor. Good luck!

Prune juice!! Start out with about 3 to 4 ounces before bed. If you don't go by the next morning, try 6 to 8 ounces during a time when you know you won't be heading out anytime soon. If 8 ounces doesn't do it to you and you've been constipated for 3 days or more... call your OB. But I used prune juice and it worked everytime!

Congratulations on making it to 36 weeks without this happening earlier. I am 37 weeks and have had it from the beginning. Prunes should do the trick - just eat a few and you will be fine. I am not a big fan but they really do keep you regular. good luck

You absolutely must on a daily basis drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water and eat many things with fiber (veggies, fruit, beans, whole grains, bran). Also getting exercise helps constipation - even if you just walk. Right now you can try eating some prunes, dates or drink prune juice to help your current state of constipation. It is approved for pregnant women to take over the counter medication Colace to help relieve the constipation. Colace is a stool softener.
