3. Maintain a light exercise schedule.
In the second and third trimester (the periods where pregnancy constipation usually hits the hardest), it begins to get more difficult to exercise. But, any form of movement is good and can actually do wonders for digestion! When all else fails, go for a nice evening stroll.
4. Increase your fiber intake.
Aim to add a bit of extra fiber to your meals in the form of beans, peas, apples, oats, chia seeds, and other fiber-rich foods. Fiber helps your food break down and also helps to absorb water. Its benefits provide the magic combo for digestion.
