Hi Causing my self a mild panic I'm really blocked up I'm cramping in bowels all the time with the urge but no results I tried stool and breathing but in desperation I have stained Also managed to evacuate a few by standing up Now really scared I'm actually causing g harm to the pregnancy and may start pre term labour I'm 21 weeks plus 4 This is baby no 5 Also have Hypermeresis gravidarum so drinking plenty is a no no and keeping most things down is a no go to Pls can some one reassure.me my baby can't be pushed out by trying to poo
I was admitted a few weeks ago as I hadn't been for 3 weeks, they even had the surgical team down. Movicol movicol movicol MAX 4 a day though as you can risk electrolyte imbalance. Avoid anything that 'bulks' like fibrogel as you can't add the necessary liquids with HG. DONT take stimulant laxatives as this genuinely could irritate your cervix. In my experience by that point glycerine suppositories were useless. Movicol will definitely work, but you need to give it a good week of 3-4 a day.
Really gonna struggle with movicol as it may make me vomit ... Yep go ape I have had a twin preg and single then gap of 9 yrs then dd 3 years ago .. constipation was bad with dd but not sons.. Just it's the constant cramping to go and then being run down with HG this preg has took it's toll. I v got to 21 weeks of being so poorly iv needed hospitalizations to keep hydrated and worry something ll f up now Can't go thru the HG again. Tried three places for lactilose but no where has it.. Grrr not that that ll be easy to keep.down either.
Maternity said not to starin amd to call if I had bleeding or loss but to go out of hrs doc for some gentle laxitives
I have senna kot from 1st trimester admissions but don't know if ok to use now I'm further along x
I second movicol, it says to make it up with lots of water, but I cold never manage that when pregnant so I just make it up with as little water as possible and took it. I know drinking can be nearly impossible at times but his does seem to be the best in pregnancy.
I also second the glycerine suppositories, attack the problem from both ends!
