    During my first pregnacy 7 years ago, they told me Dulcolax was ok when I had the mother of all cases. This time around, when I am experiencing it all over again, they recommended colace or other stool softener instead of the stimulant laxative (same doctor). So, to the mommy to be who took the Dulcolax, just relax, I am sure you haven’t done any harm to your sweet angel inside. I had a perfectly healthy baby after taking it last time. Just contact your doctor, and find out what he recommends from here on out. Do not add that stress to your already stressed (constipated, bloated and probably nauseated) self!

    In New Zealand you can get something called ‘kiwi crush’ in the frozen section of the supermarket. It is actually quite yummy, despite looking like greenish sludge, and you just mix it into a glass of water and have it once a day. Has kiwifruit in it. It worked really well for me when I was pregnant and having problems with constipation.

    It may sound simple but what I find works best is to eat a tablespoon of olive oil (I’m sure any oil would work but olive oil isn’t too gross. I always have to “go” about 30 min after swallowing the oil. And “the stuff” is usually soft because the oil softens it up. Or consult with BioTexCom clinic in Ukraine for best tips.
