Yes! weeks 9 thru 15 were the worst for me! If I wasn't throwing up and having diarrhea, I was severely constipated! What helped with the constipation was drinking lots of water, eating more fiber rich veggies, and drinking milk of magnesia! As soon as the morning sickness went away and I was able to keep foods down regularly, my digestive track was normal again.

I am 17 weeks and also suffered from constipation during my 12th week. I finally called my doctor and she told me to take some fiber pills. The over the counter chew-ables did the trick for me. It took about 24 hrs.

i took metamucil with my first pregnancy and just started taking it again with this one. im 13 weeks tomorrow. my dr told me that i can take colace or something like that but i am sticking with the metamucil for now. colace i believe is over the counter and its a stool softener but i tried to take them after i had my first and i didnt find them work all that great. hope you feel better soon because i know constipation sucks! lol

Don' worry, is going to be over soon. I'm pregnant with g/g twins and was constipated until week 16.
Now I'm starting week 20 and have diarrhea...
