Constipation

Am 26 weeks pregnant. I know constipation is common right now but sometimes I have to push so hard on the toilet that it is so frustrating!! Im so scared to push too hard...can I bring on labour or cause my cervix to open from pushing too hard when constipated???

No, constipation will not cause preterm labour. Use Senokot if you need to though.
