Constipation, difficulty having regular bowel movements or BMs, is a common symptom of pregnancy. This does not mean that you have to suffer from constipation or irregular, hard bowel movements and the pain associated with pregnancy constipation.
Constipation is very common because digestion generally slows down during pregnancy. If you are constipated, you can help yourself by following these tips:
• By drinking enough fluids
• By doing regular exercise
• Eating enough fibre which can be found in whole grain fruits and foods.
