Get a package of prunes.....safe and they work pretty quick. I also used colace when I was prego on a daily basis and kept things pretty regular for the most part...at least up until the end...then it was prunes!!

Poor you.. we are in the same boat lol!!! I have stopped taking my iron pills. I can't take the pain any more but colace and milk of magnesia helped me for a while..
Drinking the milk of mag before going to bed really helps but pls also stay away from carbs, it def makes it worse.

If you're not pg, pericolace works even better than colace! Did it for me within 6 hours of taking it!

Herbs - senna leves - make a cup of nice dark tee. Probably a teaspoon in a deciliter will do the trick. Strong and harmless, no side effects :-)

I just wanted to add that before taking anything ask your Doctor. I know a girl that took a laxative during pregnancy because of constipation. She ended up losing her baby because of the strong uterine contractions it caused. Hope you feel better!

Colace here too. (Part of my problem was 'roids (TMI) as well and it seemed to help somewhat.)

Miralax works great. My mil was constipated for months and tried everything and finally a new dr. told her to use Miralax. She hasn't needed anything else since.
