I'm going to call my doc shortly but I forgot the last 2 days and they closed early. Pretty much since conception, I've had horrible constipation. I've suffered from Colitis thanks to a spurt of under active thyroid and therefore haven't been able to go in like 2 weeks with the exception of pellets here and there. This has made my bloating and swelling worse. I increased my water intake since I know with DS they stressed it so much but I feel the water is also making it worse. My mom gave me a stool softner which is helping a little but not much. Anything else I can take?
