Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In the condition of pregnancy there are many changes in the mother's body affected by hormones. An increase in the hormone progesterone during pregnancy can affect muscle relaxation so that bowel movement slows. As a result, the digestion process runs longer and can cause constipation. However, other possibilities may be a factor for constipation, which is the size of the uterus that is starting to expand, improper eating patterns such as less consumption of fibrous food or do not want to eat, less consumption of water, lack of movement, or stress.
For that, several things that can be done to overcome the symptoms include:
Consume more fruits and vegetables as a source of fiber
Drink a lot of water
Do not hold back bowel movements
Regular exercise adapted to pregnancy conditions
Manage stress well
Be careful if constipation is accompanied by abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, until blood and mucus come out during bowel movements. See your doctor immediately for further treatment. Convey all your problems to your doctor.
That's all, hope it helps.
