Question: i am facing constipation problem since three four days...what to do
Answer: Gas and constipation are normal pregnancy symptoms to expect. The increase in the hormone progesterone slows down your digestion, so you'll want to pay careful attention to your diet. To avoid gas and constipation, you should eat smaller meals throughout the day, exercise regularly, eat a high fiber diet, drink lots of water and fluids. You can also talk to your doctor about reducing your doses of iron, which can make constipation worse

Question: hi ..iam 12 weeks pregnant ..iam facing problem of constipation since last 2-3 days ..wht shud I do???
Answer: Eat a high-fibre diet that contains lots of wholegrain cereals, wholemeal bread and fruit and vegetables. This will provide you with roughage to aid your digestion. You should also drink at least 1.5 litres (2.6 pints) of water every day. Don’t rely on taking bran to avoid constipation, unless you also drink a lot more fluids. Without extra water, bran will bulk up your poo, making it hard and less able to pass along your intestines. Large amounts of bran may also interfere with your body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients from your food.  Staying active and exercising will help to prevent constipation. Walking, swimming or aquanatal classes, gentle cycling on an exercise bike, or pregnancy exercise classes can all help.  Practising yoga positions can keep constipation at bay, and Pilates is particularly helpful. These exercises tone your inner tummy muscles, which help to keep your bowels moving.  Cut out drinks that make you wee more often, such astea, coffee, and cola. These diuretics may dehydrate you and make your constipation worse.
