Constipation

I would like to know whether it is safe to push when you constipated. What will happen if you do? I am now 18 weeks pregnant and is very constipated, sometimes I would not go for a week or so. I am too scared to push because I do not know what will happen to the baby. Please help.

Nothing will happen to the baby. However, you need to do something about the constipation. You can use Senokot and should try eating more fruit and fibre.
