I am about 8 weeks pregnant and I am having serve gas and constipation.  Does anyone know if there is anything I can safely take?

Congrats!! I'm 6.5 weeks right now (and in a flare :( ) From what I've been reading, I think it is best to increase your water intake. If you have to, try a stool softener, but NO LAXITIVES!! Try the conservative route first. What about prunes and stuff like that? As long as it doesn't bother your UC, try it! Good luck!
Diagnosed with UC in 2006
Medications: Salofalk 2gms twice a day for maintance
Salofolk 4gms twice a day during flares
Betnesol retention enemas for flares - have been on back order so not available until Feb
Pentasa enemas and supps when first diagnosed
Asacol 2.5gms twice daily
Cortifoam enemas nightly for 3 weeks, then everyother night for 4 weeks

Thanks for the reply.
I am also still in flare, well not completely I would go into remission and likely never will.
With my last pregnancy we didn't know I had Colitis and I flared up but the doctor wouldn't listen enough to diagnose it so I ended up in serve pain for three months before I found a doctor who cared enough to, but by then the damage was done and I likely will never go into remission.
Take care of yourself and keep an eye on what your body is telling you
