It's so repulsive! Is there any other way? capsules? Anything? I really hate it...

I completely agree with you I couldn't take it either. The only thing I found I could do was eat loads of rhubarb and I drank buckets of orange juice and of course kept the fibre going as well.

Lactulose is much better than drinking prune juice or eating tins of prunes, which is the only alternative I've found that works.

Thanks! - I might try a combination of all of the above...

You might want to try a fibre supplement. I believe psyllium is safe in pregnancy.
