Hi everybody! I visited my Gyno today for my 9 week ultrasound. Everything looks healthy and right on track (yay!). However, I've been experiencing some horrible constipation this pregnancy. My doctor recommended mineral oil, so I went to the store and got some. Reading the label now though, it specifically says "do not take: in children under 6, yadda yadda, if you are pregnant..." So my red flag goes way up! I trust my doctor implicitly and I know he would never steer me wrong, however that scares me! It's past office hours and I was going to take it before bed tonight, per his suggestion. My question is, have any other moms been told to take this at the advice of their obgyn during pregnancy? I appreciate any feedback and so does my bloated, very uncomfortable tummy.... Thank you all!!!
