constipated

Vera Viel - September 4

I don't know what is wrong but all of a sudden i always feel constipated recently. Feels so irritating every time i sit down because it feels like there's a blockage on my back end.

well, constipation is a common problem during pregnancy and almost half of women that are pregnant get constipated at some point.

you may prevent constipation by eating high fiber of foods like whole grain cereals and breads.

during my pregnancy, i love to eat brown rice skipping off white bread.

it helps when you drink lots of water, like at least six glasses a day.

fresh fruit juices!!! i usually drink fresh apple-carrot juice.

it is also important to not just sit around the whole day. get some light exercise like walking or even doing yoga to help ease your constipation.

if you are having constipation due to your vitamins, you may consider switching to a supplement with less iron, ask your doctor about it.

there are natural remedies available to hinder constipation during pregnancy. drink dandelion or mallow tea made from the leaves of the plants. boil it and drink it daily.

Kiwi

The luscious green flesh of the kiwi may be just what the doctor ordered. One medium kiwi has about 2.5 grams of fiber and lots of vitamins and nutrients that are important for good health, including the intestines.

A kiwi is a berry. And like most berries, it has edible seeds. You can even eat the peel, although most people prefer to eat just the flesh.

A 2013 study of adults reported in Advances in Food and Nutrition Research found that eating kiwi promotes regular bowel movements. A previous study by researchers in Taipei also found eating two kiwis a day increased the number of bowel movements in adults with constipation.

Sweet potatoes

One medium baked sweet potato with skin has 3.8 grams of fiber, which can help get things moving along. This high fiber content in sweet potatoes helps prevent constipation. The skin contains most of the fiber so leave it on for the biggest benefits.

Regular baked potatoes are also a good source of fiber, with 3 grams in a small baked potato. Leave the skin on, and high-calorie toppings such as butter or sour cream off.

As s/o said above try fruit juices. Prune juice in particular. I would say try some castor oil but that might be bad at this time.
