Hi! Constipation can be a literal pain in the a**!! On top of eating fruits, it's vvvv important to drink a lot of water. If you're also nauseated /have morning sickness, water is not gonna taste nice but you have to try. Add a slice of lemon to your water to make it more palatable (not too many slices, otherwise not great for your stomach since your appetite is not good)! I try to drink 2l of water or slightly more every day. Hope you feel better soon :)

I do not have morning sickness. Hearsay if you do not have morning sickness means baby not healthy??? I have yet to get my referral letter to hospital for first ultrasound. Am I too late?

here are some useful vids: Also pregnant women should drink at least eight 12-ounce glasses of water a day. This will help keep your bowels soft and moving smoothly through your digestive tract. Prune juice and High fiber food on top of banana and apples.

Maybe this is the cause of it. I do not have much appetite. Never eat much vege intake too.
