    Hi everyone this is miserable ??

    I am only two months and two weeks pregnant and feel and look as if I'm five months pregnant, extremely/severely backed up I have tried everything, warm water in the morning warm water in the evening Colace, Metamucil, yet just recently this past week MiraLAX which was my most reliable miracle before becoming pregnant... I have not gone number two in four weeks and if I did it would be rabbit size pebbles...someone know of anything.. What I'm afraid of is that I am already so backed up that even Cheerios won't work now ??

    Not having a bowel movement in that long is not good. I'd see your doctor ASAP. In the meanwhile, what worked for me when I was on pain meds that caused constipation was prune juice. It took about an hour or so but it did work.
