hiya hun i havent had this yet but i had it the whole way thru my last pregnancey once i never went for 2 weeks as it hurt so much and when i did go god i wont even go in to that lol, i think its an old wives tale that can affect the baby, drink loads of water, fresh orange juice and prun juice works a treat i know its taste horrible but it really works, good luck hun i know just how u feel x

I am suffering too!
I was worried about that in the first trimester too and spoke to the hospital but they said no, you cannot push the baby out!
I know I couldn't now cos she's so massive. haha!
Anyway, I have survived on a bowl of branflakes and a glass of orange juice (not from concentrate - Tropicana does the job) every day.
The days I don't have the branflakes I get constipation again the next time I go.
I'm panicking thismorning cos the milks gone off and so I haven't had them yet. Will have to get dressed and go and get some before I have breakfast.... Grrr....

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
