    Hi friend,

    First hearty congrats for ur pregnancy....

    Since u r pregnant, r u getting this constipation problem or did u have it before??? In general for constipation problem, I hav some tips... it may be useful for other friends...

    Few years back, I also had this problem, I followed some simple home remedies, I recovered within few days without any medicines...

    These are the remedies:

    1) drink at least 1 liter WARM water (pls note it neither cold nor hot water) in empty stomach after u wake up in the morning

    2) eat fruit every day. Everyone says banana s remedy for constipation, but not only banana u can eat any fruit, but don't take fruit juices, u should take fruit in solid form.

    3) eat lots of high fibre content vegetables, like green beans, ladies finger, spinach, ...(spinach s best remedy for constipation)

    4) if u like , hav high fiber content oats kanji , instead of taking coffee or tea...

    Water plays a vital role ma, so not only in the morning , drink more water as much as u
    Can....

    Hav a speedy recovery friend...

    Regards,
    Swathi.

    Adding to swaga's remedy, eat dry fruits like kismis/raisins along with warmwater.. it will really loosen the stool... since the weather is very hot now, drink lots and lots of water....
