If you eat fiber and drink water, then try something over the counter. My doc said milk of magnesia colace, and metamucil are okay to take while pregnant.

Coffee works pretty good too! BUT if your eating your fiber and drinking alot of water sounds like you might need some over the counter help. I actually have a script from my doc for a stool softner so maybe ask your OB for a script or what exactly they recomend you take over the counter!
