5 mths pregnant laxatives and excercise?

What laxatives are safe during pregancy and how often can you take them?

Is a 25 min stationery cycle every day OK? I have been doing so for a long time prior to falling pregnant.

You can use Senokot daily. Also try eating fruit and bran.
The cycling should be okay as long as you do not push your pulse rate up too high for too long.

Best wishes

Thank you. I read a safe heart rate for my age - 31 - is 130 a minute. Is that OK???

I think it is fine, but also check with you dr if there are no any hazards.

I'm walking on the treadmill and using the same stat.cycle.

I used to run everymorning before i became pregnant, now i walk and jog a little.
