My wife is 8 weeks pregnant with our first baby, but she has not needed to go the toilet. Does anyone have the same problem. Has anyone got any remedies that will be ok.

I always have constiapation and since being preg it is alot worse. I am 11 weeks and the best things are:
Prunes (or any dried fruit)
and if they dont work if she speaks to her doc and they will prescribe a thing called fybogel, it comes in a sachet and you just mix it with water and have 2 a day. Its totally natural so wont do baby any harm. And my doc swears by it.
It tastes yuck but does help.

I suffered really badly for the first 16 weeks of my pregnancy. My gp gave me lactoloose(sp?) but it didnt help. So 4 weeks ago I started eating a bowl of bran flakes every motrning and having 4_5 pints of water every day. I have been fine since.
Hope this helps.

I suffered with constipation particularly in the first semseter. I have to have a bowl of fibre for breakfast whether its weetabix of branflakes. If I have run out I know constipation will be waiting round the corner for me! xxx

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
