TMI… 7 weeks and have been struggling with constipation (also 2 months post egg retrieval = lots of hormones). Have tried stool softeners, laxatives, Metamucil… now it is literally just tiny bits of mucus coming out, no normal BM. Has been 10 days since I took a laxative. Has this happened to you? What kind of doctor do I even call or what can I do?

Prunes prunes prunes and prune juice!! Never met a bout of constipation that could withstand a constant barrage of prunes. And if that doesn't work, take magnesium oxide (powder form) - it helps to draw liquid from your intestines, loosen hardened, impacted stool and flush it out. 🚽🧻🪠

Prune juice and miralax did the trick for me.

Slippery elm supplements. Totally natural and very effective! And/or eat raw celery and Sunchokes daily worked like a charm for me pp when my body got dependent on the stool softener they recommended.

Anyone have stories of abnormal 20 week scan? I had one where the the ultrasound tech is not sure whether the heart is unsound or whether it’s the baby’s position that makes it appear so.

I’ll be joining my new role in a leadership position soon. But I also plan to have a second baby soon because it’ll get too late otherwise. Is it ok to get pregnant soon after joining a new job ? Is it frowned upon ? Do I need to have a discussion with my to-be-boss ? Do you think I should wait longer ? Or should I just reject the offer and continue in my current job ? I’m 34 and don’t want to drag this later than this.

Back pain remedies? Mamas, I’m in the home stretch and I am aching! I see a chiropractor every 2 weeks (soon switching to weekly) and I get prenatal massage as often as I can (usually monthly), but I have bad back and hip pain, especially at the end of the day. I wear supportive shoes and have a nice desk chair. Any other solutions or advice? I know the laxity in my joints is exacerbating it. Would love to hear what has helped you!
