Congrats on the pregnancy!  I had the same problem early on, and thankfully it has resolved itself. Prune juice is ok, warm apple juice, grapes, a lot of water...those are all things that helped me. My doctor was willing to give me a laxitive (I can't remember the name, but it was safe during pregnancy), but said to try the "natural" remedies first. Good luck, I know it can really make you feel miserable.

Try to increase the amount of fiber in your diet.  Morning cereal can help some.  

Congrats on your bfp!

I feel the same way.  I have increased fiber and now burp up everything because nothing "moves."

I'm thinking of a Fiber One bar, but that might be extreme.

Good luck,
Andrea

I'm almost 5 weeks pregnant and have been constipated and found that this fruit juice from Costco called Bon Via (Super concentrated) does the trick if you have a small glass.  :)
