    Green smoothies, Pear, prune, Chia seeds, psyllium hush, bran, water and exercise. Psyllium husk is much better than metamucil (it is what is in it anyway) - cheaper and much more natural - no additives, etc. Our whole family has it everyday

    Yes, we are allowed movicol when pregnant, but to be honest, prune juice is more effective if you need results!

    I was constipated for 5 days when I was around 12 Weeks pregnant. I drank a huge glass of 100 percent prune juice..its way more effective than the watered down stuff..It was so disgusting but I was on the toilet about ten minutes later!
    Ive started drinking a glass of pear juice everyday with a benefibre stick and either wheatbix or allbran for breakfast...works really well.
