I made smoothies each morning and included a big handful of spinach and a spoonful of flax seed. This always helped to keep me naturally regular when undergoing IVF.👌🏼

Ask your doc for lizness!

Water, fiber and being in motion. If you are taking prenatal vitamins, research options with non-constipating iron. Good luck!

Daily glass of prune juice

Not pleasant, but try an enema. I also read that you are supposed to do one the night before your egg retrieval. Not sure how reliable that is (can’t remember the source), but I did it... Also incorporate Psyllium seed husks in your diet.

Magnesium supplements - try Calm brand on Amazon. Check with your doctor of course but I’m currently pregnant and magnesium is safe/recommended for natural constipation relief.
