constipated bad pains

I'm 25 weeks and I'm constipated really bad I have tried all the things the Dr told me and its not working this is my second child n this didn't happen with my first one. I'm carrying a lot lower this time than last so I'm not sure if that's part of the problem. I also have real bad back pain n its my whole back can someone help?

you need to make sure your your drinking at least 6 glasses of water per day and having a good amount of fibre, raw muesli for breakfast or rolled oats made into porridge as well, wholegrain bread, fresh veges and fruit, 1 kiwi fruit per day will soften everything up as well, also pear juice is very good to help things along as well

I don't know what the dr. has told you but did he say colace (stool softener), miralax (for fiber) and I know how crazy this sounds but hot decaffinated tea?

I was taking Zofran for the vomiting, and it definitely increased the constipation.  I was told on top of all the dietary intake of fresh fruits and veggies, that colace stool softener is safe, if that didn't work well miralax is good, and if I still couldn't go then I could use the senna laxative.  Senakot is the brand and senna is the generic.  That is the only thing that finally worked for me, and I usually have to take 1 dose a week.

A glass of prune juice morning and night helps me out. Also, if you are having gas pains (I also get them in my back from time to time, BAD!) you can try Ovol for adults. Check with your doctor but it's supposed to be safe to take.
