    It happens Rela, you need some flax meal if you can get it, that or some senna cots.

    Are you having plenty of roughage? I find cabbage helps. Not that it's a problem any more.

    LOL at your avatar Rela - took me a while and I had to say it out loud.

    Constipation can be a bit of a side effect of low carb. Jim's advice is spot on; senna or dulcolax to deal with it as a one-off and then look to include some flax meal or fybogel, something to add some (ahem) bulk.

    The naughty way to do it of course is to eat 6 or 7 sugar free boiled sweets. The effects can be quite shocking if you've a sensitive tummy though!

    The weird fizzing sensation suggests that the laxatives will be "working" soon.

    Don't stray too far from a toilet! I only take them at a weekend!

    It says they work in 8-10 hours and its been like 15 now. Thank god hubby is off today and has the kids downstairs. I am tucked up nicely now with hot water bottle and laptop and I have a Big Bang Theory dvd to watch all afternoon. Now if the pain would go away it would be bliss!

    There's nothing like a hot water bottle to make you feel better is there. Hope you pick up soon x

    It said to take 2 tablets before bedtime and I did. I have thrown them in the bin now, evil things!!!! I have spent most of afternoon in bathroom. I know I'll feel better tomorrow and less bloated and stuff but no way was the pain worth it! I ain't kidding I thought I was having contractions at one point!

    Ouch! I use dulcolax which also says to take 2 at bedtime and I've learned the painful way to only take one! Hope you're feeling better now. x

    oh yes, same with the senna cots, I only ever took 1. You'll have to get some roughage into what your eating love.

    Thats why I was so shocked, I'm eating a tonne of veg and drinking all my water. Going to get some flaxmeal today and have a go at some of the muffin type things see if that helps. This morning my tummy is all tender, I feel like I've been in a scrap!

    I use it as a thickener for sauces and stuff as well Rela, or sometimes I just sprinkle it on top of a meal.
