Commonly every pregnant woman will suffer from the form of constipation. It may be mild or severe. The pregnant will feel uncomfortable because of this constipation. During pregnant time, the digestive system slows down and becomes slow-moving. This is because the bowels can take out every possible bit of nutrition from food, drink and vitamins that are ingested. The increasing fetus requires more nutrients to grow well. And the slowing digestive system works to provide as much as it can. Due to this, water is absorbed by the body instead of fleeting through the waste ensuing in a drier waste product. This is the major reason for the constipation. Also when the uterus grows, it may push down in the intestines, which causes more constipation. It is a common problem during pregnancy.
