Answer: Hi dear, I faced the same issue and constipation during pregnancy is mainly caused by hormonal changes. Pregnancy is often accompanied by an increase in the progesterone hormone that causes the relaxation of all the muscles in your body, including your intestinal muscles. Relaxed intestinal muscles mean slower digestion, and this can lead to constipation.Few remedies which I used and helped me to get relief : Lemon : Squeeze half a lemon into a glass of warm water.Add honey to taste and consume this daily Yogurt: Consume a cup of plain yogurt. Apple Cider Vinegar: Take a glass of warm water and add a tablespoon each of honey and apple cider vinegar to it. Mix well and consume this solution. Chia Seed.Let the chia seeds soak in water for 30 minutes. Add the soaked chia seeds to your favorite drink and have it.
Answer: Drink warm milk with ' isabghol' mixed in it
