Yes and no: Yes, constipation is one of the joys of pregnancy. In early pregnancy, the hormones slow the bowel down. In later pregnancy, a combination of increased fluid requirements and having a mass in your belly (the pregnant uterus) is the culprit. In both cases, pushing fluids, water mainly, is key.
