Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I had a similar experience in the first trimester. I was bloated and gassy but unable to have regular bowel movement. It made for a miserable 3 months! In layman's terms I was told that it's because your digestive system slows down so that the baby has time to absorb the nutrients of the food you eat. I tried eating high fiber foods like certain cereals and prunes or raisins if you prefer. Also 100% juice like apple juice can be helpful or if you can get apple cider that may be better. Hope this helps and stay well.
