I had the exact same issue.  I would cry it was so bad.  Do NOT use anything with senna (or another stimulant) in it as in can cause contractions and premature labor/miscarriage.  Colace is perfectly safe and if you take it religiously it will eventually help but the only thing that would finally get me going was to use a glycerin suppository.  Those are perfectly safe as you can use them on infants as well. But watch out!  Once you do it, you GO!

Here’s an article that may help:

@SimplyChic11:  Yeah I found it actually made me even more nauseous somehow. I finally got off the zofran at 20 weeks and haven’t had the problem since.  Hallelujah!
