I know it can be embarrassing to talk about or bring up, but I just can't handle it anymore! It is like trying to climb mount everest except I'm in my own bathroom! I have tried all the natural remedies - eat a more balanced diet with more fiber, drink a lot more water, apple juice, even nasty old prune juice - and nothing seems to help at all. I'm 35 weeks pregnant and other than my acid reflux which my OB gave me medicine for already, this is the absolute worst part of it. I will sit on the toilet for an hour and not have any luck at all!
Does anyone else deal with this? And if so, what have you done to make it better? My OB said that laxatives can cause contractions in some cases so if I can I want to steer clear of them unless it's my only option or unless there is a laxative that is safe... I'm ready to have my baby but not this early!
