    Fruit! Try oranges, apples, pears rather than banana. Also, drink cups of hot water. Boil the kettle, add to a cup, maybe a squeeze of lemon juice if you fancy, then drink as hot as you can stand. It's really good for bloated stomachs and I find it helps me 'go' when I need a bit of help.

    If you need more taste, then try drinking peppermint tea, either around meal times to help the food digest or instead of a cup of tea or coffee.

    You haven't had loads of eggs by any chance? I did that one week and was egg-bound!! I tend to spread them out over the week, and not have quite so many now!!

    A tip someone gave me once was to fill up your kettle and boil it then pour the boiling water into the toilet bowl. Let the first steam rise off it and then sit down - the steam apparently helps to loosen things up a bit. I tried it once a few months ago when I'd been on codeine for a dental abscess (codeine stops you from going) and it helped a bit. Going to the dentists helped even more though (am terrified of them)!!

    If you want to use your syns try eating a 100g bag of Thornton's diabetic toffee. You should be sorted out within a couple of hours!

    Thanks for all the replies :)
    Had some peppermint tea and it has got things moving a little bit.
    Going to have a nice hot bath soon so hopefully that should help too :)

    Talk about eggbound lol

    That's EXACTLY what you have to do to hen budgies when they are eggbound and cannot pass or lay their egg - hold them over a gentle steam to allow the steam into the vent and release the egg!

    I was going to suggest the sea salt or saltwater cleanse - works fantastically, but not can't recommend it if pregnant i'm afraid.

    I'm the opposite, I've never gone so much in my life! Wondering if it's all the dairy I've been having (maybe an intolerence?) I've had mainly red days this week.

    I'll give you a word of advice...
    If you eat a whole jar of beetroot in one go, don't freak out if / when the water in the bowl turns red......

    I had a reaction like that years ago- then couldn't stop laughing when I remembered that i'd eaten beetroot. The person in the cubicle next to me must've wondered what was going on!!!
