(Sorry in advance if TMI)
I'm now 26W along and have found this symptom to be appearing as much as I dreaded it. I thought I was getting enough fiber but I guess I need to up my levels since 3x now I've been in the bathroom for about 40-60 mins trying not to force anything. (Thank goodness I don't have to worry about hubby needing bathroom since he's deployed!) And still when I was finally able to finish up there was blood involved. Looking on WebMD it says if it happens all the time to consult the doctor but otherwise to just up the fiber and never to force anything.
Should I consult with my doctor already do you think or try adding more fiber and seeing if it continues before saying anything? Next appointment is in 2 weeks.
