How can I manage constipation during pregnancy?
Q: I am a 24 years old woman, my height is 5.4" and weight is 51 kg. I am 6-7 weeks pregnant. I have severe constipation and gas problem. I feel hungry, but am unable to eat due to this. Please suggest me a proper diet and also tell me how much more weight do I need to gain?
A:You need to gain a total of 10-12 kgs, through the nine months of pregnancy, and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables to help the constipation. Drinking plenty of water and fluids also helps. In case it is not ok with just that, you may take Cremaffin 2 tablespoon at night for a week. Increasing physical activity also helps.
