From the article: Does IBS Affect Pregnancy?
Pregnancy appears to affect irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms differently in different women. For some, pregnancy results in a lessening of IBS symptoms, while in others, pregnancy seems to make things worse. What did you experience? Was your IBS better or worse during pregnancy? Did your symptoms change depending on which trimester you were in? Share your story here and find out about the experiences of others.

Constipation

With my second child, I was so constipated! I would keep going back on to the toilet but all I would squeeze out would be one little nugget. It was so frustrating, particularly as I was chasing after another little one at the time. Luckily it got better once I got past my first trimester.
