Bad severe constipation.

I am now in week 27. Just recovered from a very bad severe constipation. Now having difficulties to urinate as still feeling sore from the constipation. Anyone went thru this? Do i have to go for a massage to ensure my pelvic floor is doing fine? Help. Thank you in advance.#1stimemom #firstbaby #theasianparentph #advicepls

For constipation please try yellow dragon fruit. Thou it is expensive but it work like magic! Re having difficulty to pee, I suggest you visit your gynae, you might be down with UTI. In pregnancy, hormones cause changes in the urinary tract, and that makes women more likely to get infections. Changes in hormones can also lead to vesicoureteral reflux, a condition in which your pee flows back up from your bladder to your kidneys. This can cause UTIs. When you’re pregnant, your pee has more sugar, protein, and hormones in it. These changes also put you at higher risk for a UTI. Because you’re pregnant, your growing uterus presses on your bladder. That makes it hard for you to let out all the urine in your bladder. Leftover urine can be a source of infection. UTI Complications During Pregnancy Pyelonephritis is a UTI that affects the kidneys. If you’re pregnant it can cause: - Preterm labor - Severe infection - Adult respiratory distress syndrome - Anemia - Long-term infection Hence, if it persist, please go see a GP or visit your gynae. It is easily treatable with 3 to 7 days or as your doctor recommends. Take good care and God bless you and your baby. Jiayou Jiayou👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I have severe constipation until I have the piles :( what works for me is - eat brown rice, tons of veg, a yacult a day, a tiny cup of yogurt once every 2 days and tons of water. at one point in time, I had the poop half in and out of my bum and I cried so hard in the toilet. dragon fruit of any color works and apple with the skin too. I eat cherry tomatoes, including seeds. hope it gets better for you

I used to have it too during early first trimester. I started taking probiotics LB30, now I am able to go to the toilet once everyday or maximum 2 days. I used to take BIO&ME probiotics as well and it was great for a few weeks but the effect wasn’t very constant. It really helps me so much, and I heard they help in preventing eczema/hives for the baby. :)

Hello! Can I ask how bad was your constipation? Mine was so bad that I bled quite a bit, and it caused my vagina to bulge out. I'm quite worried ☹️☹️☹️

during my 22nd week i also had severe constipation, i started bleeding lighty due to too much strain. try eating yogurt, oatmeal and more water. It helped me a lot.

sakin po kasi sa poop super constipated po kasi

I used to have very bad constipation too. I’ve tried various food, by far avocado works best. I drink 1 cup avocado juice everyday and no constipation at all.

Have at least 2 servings of fruits per day to help with the constipation - banana, papaya, avocado worked really well for me. Drink lots of milk too

have dragonfruit. either red or white. both r good. if serious, eat half of yellow dragonfruit as it's very potent. (natural laxatives)

hi u can have some daily fiber drinks and buy some duphalac from pharmacy which help to soften your poop.
