Constipation

Is there any 1st trimester safe remedies for constipation?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that many of the above remedies are excellent, and I don't see any that would be harmful.  My personal favorites are Miralax (don't take Immodium that is for diarrhea)
and Colace.  Both medications pass right through and are not absorbed, therefore, healthy for both mom and baby.
Good luck!

Milk of Magnesia worked for me. It was on the list of safe medications. I also drank prune juice and ate prunes. I was completely miserable and everything seemed to help.
