    Hi Ladies

    Am 35 weeks pregnant and have a bad constipation. My gynec is asking me to take enema and at the same time warned me that I might go into labor if i take enema. I really don't want to take chances.

    Its almost 48hrs i didn't poop. And I don't feel like to go...Any natural remedy ?

    Quick response is greatly appreciated...

    Try eating bananas or guava (koyya pazham). You can also eat dates.
    But bananas and Guava relieve contispation very quickly.

    Also you should drink plenty of water. Try this..you will definitely poop.

    Basically the stools should become soft. Any fiber food should help.
    Guava definitely helps.. If you can get the leaves also, you can make a decotion of it and drink..

    3 prunes should help in less than 12 hours.

    You need not take enema for this I believe! I am wondering why your gynae said so.

    Sometimes, I feel maida related products help too. Like paratha. or some spicy chinese food.

    Soak dry grapes in warm water and drinking that and eating those grapes help quickly too, this is what we use for kids.

    Please consult with another doctor before taking enema for this and going into labour.

    subha,

    drink more water.
    reduce maida, sugar and processed foods.
    eat regular meals with more fibre. plantain pith could help. greens definitely.even cabbage can help.
    have a good serving of fruits. figs.
    a little exercise would help. i don't know if it is possible or if you will be able to do even simple squats..they would help. but don't try if you are not comfortable please.
    sitting in a warm water tub could also help.

    Prunes juice is the best. Take a glass full. Try cantaloupes as well. castor oil also works for sure but may not be a right choice at this stage in pregnancy. I can write a report on constipation, have that much experience starting from castor oil, prunes fruit, prunes juice, cantaloupes, OTC pills, Fiber supplements (both pills as well as powder), wheat bran to name a few.
