If you are pregnant, you might notice problems with constipation throughout your entire pregnancy. You can eat prunes, eat fiber, and drink lots of water to help with that problem though.

However, if you are trying to look at symptoms to determine whether or not you are pregnant, don't. Just take a pregnancy test. That's the only way to know. Many women experience constipation during pregnancy, but many also notice it when they are not pregnant. So you can never tell if you are pregnanct or not by symptoms.
