    Metamucil! Take it 3 times today. It will make you feel SOOOO much better. And drink lots of water. I know it sounds counter-intuitive for the bloating, but it actually helps flush out some of the excess fluid. Usually metamucil can take about 8-12 hours to work, so if you take 3 small doses throughout the day you should be feeling better by tomorrow. I swear by the stuff--I don't know how I would have gotten through the pregnancy without it. :)

    You can use suppositories or drink prune juice or eat prunes. I use to eat prunes and drink prune juice when I was constipated during pregnancy. It always worked for me.
