Anonymous Post: Pregnancy, Zofran and constipation.

So I am taking Zofran to deal with my severe morning sickness problems, and it's helpful except that it is making me SUPER CONSTIPATED. Like...super. I got some ground flax and I'm trying to get as much fiber and liquid as I can in my idiosyncratic sickness-dictated diet, but in the meantime I am just concerned as to how much constipation is too much? I could ask my OB's office, but I would prefer not to make that phone call from my in-laws' house and that's where I'll be tomorrow and for the next few days. :)

I've been having bowel movements...for a few days there, it was every day, but they are always small and I know things have to be pretty backed up in there. Sometimes I skip a day or two. At what point should I be alarmed/take a Zofran break/consult a medical professional? I'm hoping that it can wait until at least after Christmas if it's an issue...

Thanks for any poo-related wisdom you can share. :)
