glycerin suppository in 1st trimester

I'm seriously backed up and bloated. Look about 5 months already and I'm only 9 weeks.

Every time I go to wee I'm also doing a little chicken nugget and I can feel there's some right where waiting to evacuate but it just won't move!

I'm wondering in glycerin suppositories are safe at this stage? I've got some in the cupboard and they're looking very tempting first time I've been excited about shoving something up my arse

Doesn't it say anything on the packet. My friend had terrible constipation once and sat in a hot bath and er..........helped it out.

It says avoid unless advised by a doctor. So doesn't rule them out entirely!

Get in the bath lady. The longer it's stuck in your bum the drier it will become and you'll never pass it. Oh and get some tinned grapefruit that will shift anything

When its resolved, I can highly recommend Fybogel to help keep things soft and moving. Stir into watet and drink twice a day, not too bad really. A while after I gave birth I realised it is available on prescription! For free!

I have a hot bath every night, my bowels are immune blush

Will fibogel only work once everything is out as a way to keep it moving or will it help with this blockage?! X

I think your missing my point on the bath thing YOU need to help your poo out!! Do I need to draw a picture wink

I used Microlax at about 9 weeks. I had terrible constipation brought on by dehydration due to hyperemesis. It was prescribed by a doctor but I think it is available OTC and it worked a treat.

Soonly yes I'm afraid I need a picture wink

Stick your finger up your bum!!!!!! Pull the poo out......sorry

Prescriptions are not free... grrrr

movicol, fybogel and glycerine suppositories are all ok

If you're badly constipated Fybogel won't help, you need a laxitive, its more of a stool softener to help prevent constipation. I took it throughout most my pregnancy after being very constipated for the first couple of months. Someone tried to touch my 'bump' at about 4 months and I had to angrily tell them it was a poo!

Go to your doctors and ask about a laxitive.

Prescriptions are free if you're pregnant and for a year after the birth.

I thought glycerin suppositories are fine - they just draw water to the bowel and coat the poo. Nothing getting into your body otherwise
