Question: constipation during pregnancy
Answer:  Hii I have also felt such a difficult time during pregnancy. Do follow below steps to avoid constipation.  1: When you get up in the morning, drink a glass of warm water with lemon.  2: Take a tablespoon of coconut oil or olive oil before each meal. The oil which help soften and lubricate the stool.  3: Until you clear your bowels limit your meals to fresh fruits such as apples and pears with skins , soups, salad vegetables like grated carrots with skins, nuts, seeds like sunflower and pumpkin and legumes such as black beans and chick peas (think hummous), and other easily digested protein such as eggs. Once your bowels have cleared you can go back to a more varied diet with meat etc.  4: Go for a long walk (or a repetitive walk close to the toilet).  5: Take a glass of warm water or herbal tea with a tablespoon full of psyllium husks before going to bed. Psyllium husks are a natural fibre which will move through your digestive tract and soften your stool.  6: Stew on the stove half a cup of dried fruits such as apricots or prunes with a cupful of water. Cook till the fruit is soft and then mash it and eat the whole thing including liquids in the morning before eating anything else.  7: Have a tablespoon of molasses and raw honey every day.  8: Take a probiotic daily.  9: Avoid caffeinated drinks. Although they might help move the bowel initially, because they are diuretic, they compound the problem by causing dehydration. Diuretics can be dangerous in pregnancy.  10: Go to the toilet when you have the urge, don’t put it off.  11: To ease the stool passing, rub some organic oil (e.g. virgin coconut oil) on your bottom area.  12. Eat more of fibre rich food.   Drinking enough water (ideally filtered to get out the nasties) and having enough exercise are also important for keeping your bowels going. If you can go for a walk every day (even for 20 minutes).
