    Hi Lychee

    I think it was in the second tri that it started, can't remember exactly when though.I've been pretty lucky and haven't suffered really at all from it.

    i'm only eight and a bit weeks and it started about a week ago. Doc said it was probably because of the folate and iron i'm taking.

    The constipation started at about 8wks for me. I also think it was b/c of the iron and folate supplements I was taking. Now I just eat apples and licorice (and changed vitamins to Elevit) and everything seems to be in order in the pooping department. O

    I think for me it was in the First Trimester - can't remember properly!

    Hang on, just looked at my antenatal record and yes it was first trimester.

    Try to drink lots of water and eat plenty of fibre.

    Best wishes - hope you feel better soon.
