9 weeks pregnant and constipated. I drink water and gatorade. And Jane been eating bran cereal. Haven't had a normal bowel movement for about a week.
Include more fiber: In diet! Gatorade is mainly sugar, and not so great for electrolyte replacement. There is something with less sugar called Vitamin Water, but what is even safer is coconut water (fresh). That was used in WW2 to treat wounded soldiers IV! In any case, call your OB/GYN for further direction, and eat more cooked greens and veges. Better to use organic steel cut oats, than bran (GMO). ...Read more

Short answer, yes: Oat grains are de-husked, then heated and cooled to make oat groat--the most "raw" form you can buy. Groats are then rolled by machine or cut (steel cut). Rolled oats are okay to eat raw--they have been minimally processed making them more digestible. That being said, rolled oats eaten without further cooking will taste "green" and have a grittier chewing texture. They are healthy as are cooked. ...Read more
