In brief: Yes

A lot depends on hydration status and , of course other meds and/or vitamins one is taking.
Prenatal vitamins high in iron can constipate. Good hydration lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and fibre can keep one fairly regular.

In brief: Yes

Having intermittent constipation and mild occasional diarrhea is common and suggestive of irritable bowel syndrome.
You should take a fiber suppliment daily and discuss this further with your doctor.
